A selection of some of the rest of birds I had out on Inishmore last weekend, mostly passerines. A fairly quite trip on the passerine front with only around half a dozen Chiffchaffs, ten Goldcrests, Spotted and Pied Flycatchers seen. I was a little surprised to see a covey of eight Red-legged Partridge on the island. Some shooter or group of shooters obviously has brought the birds out onto the island probably in notion of improving the avifauna of the island. It's about as beneficial to conservation as introducing giraffes onto the island!
