The 1st winter American Herring Gull was feeding on fish offal at Galway Docks today, along with 6 Iceland and 1 Glaucous Gull 1st winter. Ringed-bill was at the pier.
Also when to Lough Atalia usual suspects one duck in the distance I could not make out (need to gen up on my ducks) and the strange farmyard hybrid hanging around with the Shelduck. Scaup, teal, Gadwall, Goldeneye, Wigeon.
Troakie I assume you had the Little Gulls at Mutton Island Causeway how close were they and any idea of age.
