Brent geese in Strnadhill

Last November I saw a flock of about 50 Brent Geese on these beach, so after seeing the small flock in Rosses point I thought there might be a good chance that I would find more in Strandhill. I wasn't disappointed, I there was 37 of them. Since they'll be starting their migration back to Canada in the next few weeks, it might have been the last chance of seeing them till next Autumn.
There was also a very large group of Ringed plovers near the town, they didn't hang around for long.
