Slower day in Ireland. 23.8.2012

Today we stated about at 6:30. We walked to the Bridges of Ross and then the rain started... Great.
Me, Tuukka and Esko left to get some sleep and Jände stayed bravely.
I picked up Jände at 09:00 and he said that there was 5minutes rain after we left and slow/normal migration.
He had about 25 European Storm-Petrels, some Skuas, many Manx Shearwaters and so on.
Great locals guys were there all day and i just wait to see their sightings. (Not much)
We came back to the Bridges of Ross at 10:30 and migration was still slow. Hour and a half was enough and we left.

Adult Gannet came quite close.

Shag in the Atlantic ocean.

Next place to visit was nice Wader places about 40km north of Bridges of Ross.
We had many Sanderlings, Dunlins and Common ringed Plovers. Nothing special this time but i think these wader places will give us nice surprises in the future.

Something is wrong if i´d need to visit Ireland to photograph these..

After few hours in other places, we came back to Bridges of Ross and our plan was nice evening sea-watch.. Rain had some different in he´s mind and we were quite wet when we decided to leave.
Rest of the evening we sat in the hotels restaurant and pro guys showed us nice maybe 3cy Glaucous Gull!
Nice Ireland tick!
Today i took only 34 photos, so not much to show..
Tomorrow it will be rainy day with horrible East / North-East wind, so no sea-bird migration tomorrow.. Maybe waders again.
