Loop Head Migration

I went back to Loop Head yesterday evening due to the fact that there were migrants at headlands and islands all over the country yesterday due to South-east winds.  In Gibson's Garden Kilbaha there were two Yellow-browed Warblers, one Pied Flycatcher,one Spotted Flycatcher, one Goldcrest and four Siskins.  A flock of 14 Lapland Buntings were flying around open ground on the approach side to the Lighthouse where a young male Sparrowhawk was stirring things up (more shots will be added later).
