Glaucous Gull

We held a local Birdwatch Ireland outing this morning to Liscannor Pier and Lahinch area of west Clare.  A first-winter Glaucous Gull was found feeding on a dead dolphin carcas on the shore at Liscannor.  We also got to see the Tundra Bean Goose and three Pink-footed Geese in the fields near Sandsfield.  Other birds seen today included Pale-bellied Brent Geese, Great & Red-throated Divers, Common Scoters and a good mix of wading birds.
