Kilmore quay , June '13
Headed down to Tac yesterday on a Dragon/Damselfly hunt , and to see what else was about.
Plenty about but quite on the bird front , best being a distant female ringtail. Decided to head to to Kilmore to do a bit of Patch seawatching.
Was rewarded straight with a Curlew sandpiper (102) feeding with a small Dunlin flock and a Raven ( 103 )feeding on the shingle beach.
Moved on out to St Patricks bridge and almost instantly had a few Manxies through (104 ) , about 30 passed in total , half an hour into watching had my highlight of the day , a cracking adult Long-tailed Skua ( 105 ) a Patchtick , so all in all a good detour.
So on 105 spp , 138 pts and 67.70 %
