Iceland Gull

A few of us took a trip across the North Clare coast yesterday 7th January 2012, to add to our new years list of birds.  We managed to find ten Black-throated Divers, one immature Common Eider, 14 Long-tailed Ducks, 18 Common Scoter, 600 Brent Geese, 80 Great Northern Divers, two Red-throated Divers, one Gannet and 50-60 Razorbills and Guillemots, three Sandwich Terns on the Ballyvaughan Bay side of Finvarra Point, along with this first-winter Iceland Gull that fed up and down along the shore near the Martelloe Tower.
