Pied Wheatear

I got down to Ballymacoda Beach in Cork during the middle of last week to see Irelands 4th Pied Wheatear.  I had missed the original bird found at Knockadoon in 1980 and the male bird at Loop Head in 1988 on my doorstep, and did not travel for the third bird. But this one was worth waiting for and gave excellent views for all who travelled to the Rebel county.
