|Lets look at the tern islands|
|........ could do with a drop of water!|
Walks to Kearney and Ballyquinton Point turned up all the usual suspects including my final swallow on September 30th and a mixed flock of about 150 finches feeding in stubble. The coastal path has been well walked this week to try and add curlew which is a major omission on the NDCP patch. Still three months to go however so all is not lost. The gannets have gone as have the terns and the brent geese have arived in numbers. They have been seen at Kinnegar and eleven flew over WOW last week.
