Early Seawatch

During the week of 24th to 26th May, severe North West winds blew over the Irish coastlines bringing with them a fair scattering of early seabirds and North American waders.  Paul Troake and Geoff Pearson ended up doing a bit of seawtching off the Bridges of Ross and were rewarded with the following;

Sabine's Gull 4
Leach's Storm Petrel 1
Storm Petrel 9
Pomarine Skua 1
Arctic Skua 2
Bonxie 3
Manx Shearwater 5,000 plus off the head.
Bonxie 3 off the head.
