Pied Wagtail

I did a tour of west Clare today, beginning at Seafield, near Quilty where there were hundreds of wading birds on the shore and many of the Turnstones were colour ringed. Also had a colour ringed Saderling and first year Herring Gull. Near Quilty I managed to find an Eastern Jackdaw and re-located the Water pipit within a flock of Rock Pipits just south of Seafield.  I then passed through Quilty village on my way north towards Clahane.  In Quilty village an adult Ring-billed Gull was on the beach.   When I got to Clahane the second Water Pipit was on the shoreline feeding with Redshank and Turnstones.  These Pied Wagtails were showing well, along with Rock Pipits.
