I dropped into Cromane in Kerry this afternoon. While there I saw the first-winter Glaucous Gull that I photographed on my last visit and three colour ringed Pale-bellied Brent Geese. I tend not to take many shots nowadays of Brent Geese as in the past I took so many that a re just sitting in the office in slide boxes or on hard drives. Spending time today taking these shots and 300 more I forgot how social these geese are with lots of squabbling between different groups and family parties. Great to see.
