Slyne Head 30th May 12


Collection of pics mostly from Slyne Head today. Great weather, temperature not as intense as the last few days. Got a county butterfly tick in the form of Small Blue behind the golf course also.

Best bird of the day was undoubtedly a Pectoral Sandpiper in Truska in the very same spot that I had five individuals back in September. Wonder if it's one of the five returning back North? As far as I can make out this is the first record of an American wader seen during the Spring county Galway.
