''IRELAND for GULLS'' Trip, 6th, 7th & 8th March, 2015
March 8th, DAY 3, Ballycotton and Youghal Harbours.
We started the day at Ballycotton Harbour, we find out that there is a 10 mile ''road race'', a big local event scheduled to start at 13.00 hours. They are all ready putting up the hot dogs stalls into position, traffic is restricted !
At the harbour, perfect light, a superb day,
an hour with no sighting of the Laughing Gull !
We are concerned about being trapped in Ballycotton so we get out by 10.00 hours and head off to nearby Youghal Harbour.
at Youghal Harbour, Iceland Gull, juvenile, 2

At 12.00 hours we headed into Cork, checked out a location, to many people and no gulls !
Only one option left, back to Nimmo's, to finish the day off !
17.30 hours, we head for Shannon Airport, 21.15 flight to Stansted, drop Shaun off home at 00.15 hours, Mick off 15 mins later and me home by 01.00 hours
a simply superb weekend !
