Iceland Gull

This second year Iceland Gull was the highlight from my trip to Loop Head today.  The bird arrived into the harbour and took a rest on the rocks just south of the harbour wall before flying back inland towards Cloghaun Lough.  At this time of the year Iceland Gulls should be back in Greenland and Arctic Canada, preparing to nest.  This bird will probably be another year or two older before he or she will begin breeding.
