Little bit better in Ireland, 25.8.2012

We started again from Bridges of Ross. Migration was better than yesterday but not great as some people expected.
I counted Kittiwakes today and i got almost as big number as Niall and other pro observers.
We had 2 hours in the BOR and then we had to go to eat some breakfast. We actually took it long way beacause we were back in the BOR at 10:00. Kittiwake migration was still strong and other birds we seen also.
After Sea-watch, we drove along the coastal road and there was species like Great Tit and Goldcreast so Great! After driving we landed to Doonbeg where we tried to find rare waders again..
Surprisingly we did not find any of those American waders..

Daily Gannet.

Arctic Skua.

3cy Kittiwake.

Rock Pipit in Carrigaholt.

After empty wader try, we came back to the Bridges of Ross. Many Skuas were migrate at the evening and one Great Skua or Bonxie like locals call it flew very near of us.
Best sighting was Balearic Shearwater witch was lifer for me! Bird was with one Manx Shearwater and luckily it was quite near so we had  chance to ID it!
Reat of the wvenign we tried to photo birds and watch little bit of the migration.
Here is some numbers and photo from the day.


Kittiwake 195
Puffin 14
Arctic Skua 9
Great Skua 8
Pomarine Skua 3

and other bullshit :)
