Nimmo's Pier, Galway, Ireland, 6/2/2012

The sky is grey cloud, looks like rain coming, by 10.00 hours it was light rain.

08.00 hours, we started our day at Nimmo's Pier, the tide was out, less gulls today.

Kumlien's, 1
Iceland Gull, 1st winter, 5
Iceland Gull, adult winter, 1

The weather was not for photography, so we decided to drive up the coast to see if we could find anything new ourselves.

On route, we stopped at several coastal locations, adding to our seen list

Ringed Plover
Bar-tailed Godwit
Great Tit, Dunnock and Greenfinch

12.30 hours saw us back at Nimmo's Pier. Now the sky has cleared a bit. We came to see GULLS, here we go again with the photos ! !

 Late afternoon, a bonus bird, in the harbour mouth, a Great Northern Diver

Also the Corvids

A big shout to M.S. for organising and all the driving he put in, Cheers Mick, the next two photos were taken especially FOR YOU ! !  Happy birthday on this day.

We ended the day at Nimmo's about 17.30 hours, drove to Shannon Airport, flew in to Stanstead and I dropped the chaps of at 11.45 hours.

This trip was cracking GULL education for me.  100/100
