Mediterranean Gull

I took a quick look at Tarbert Bay in County Kerry yesterday after doing some survey work at the nearby Kerry/Limerick border.  There was this juvenile Mediterranean Gull, two Common Sandpipers, one Little Egret, 140 Curlew, one Whimbrel, 120 Redshank, eight juvenile Shelducks and ten Great Crested Grebes. The bay looks really great for a North American vagrant wader.  Hopefully one will turn up there before the end of the Autumn.
