Red-flanked Bluetail Lifer

I took today off work to go to Bellmullet to see the Red-flanked Bluetail that Dave Suddaby found there yesterday in his back garden.   After missing the last three in Ireland, I promised myself that I would try to make it for the next one and as I did not see a pair that were nesting in Finland during a visit there to the Finnish/Russian border in 2010, I was anxious to get this on my Life List.  Here are the results of todays trip to Mayo.
