Quite a good run of it this last week. Red Backed Shrike and Wryneck on Galley last Wednesday were both Irish ticks, followed by a Serin on Friday for another tick and a Black Tern on Kilkeran Lake today for yet another.
All good... but none of which helps my on-patch tally one iota.
As luck would have it though a fly by flock of a dozen or so knot this evening does. First time on patch... and the second patch-tick wader of the autumn.
Puts me on 95.76% -- and, crucially, still in touch with Seppy in the Irish patch race!
