Five Mile Bridge Killarney National Park ,Ireland

As usual struggling in identification.I spotted this one sitting down on a rock at the edge of the Long Range (between the upper and mid lakes in National Park Killarney) He wasnt the least bit bothered by the motor boat and was still there on the return trip several hours later.
Thanks in anticipation of your replies

Almost constant tail bobbing is also a good pointer in the field for Common Sand.
