Birdwatching in Rosses Point

Being a sunny day, with not too many people on the the beach, there was a good bit of bird activity. Taking advantage of the low tide to feed, there was a group of over 50 Oystercatchers, 5 Sandrerlings and 2 Black-backed gulls. Flying amongts the vegetation on the dunes were a pair of Medow Pipit. A pair of Shags flew by and they were shortly followed bu a flock of 7 Brent geese.
