Geoff Hunt 🦆Birdwatching🦅 on the Shannon

Thanks to Birdwatch Ireland Limerick Branch.

Huge thanks to Geoff Hunt for leading over 20 people at our outing today. Starting at Tarbert near the ferry we spotted a Mediterranean Gull in a flock of Black-headed Gulls. Then on to the hide outside Tarbert where there was plenty of Shelduck, Widgon, Teal, Curlew, Redshank and 4 Snipe flying along the shoreline to mention but a few. We stopped in Glin next where some of the luckier people saw a Dipper and Kingfisher on the river but they were gone in a flash!! On our way to Robertstown Creek we stopped off at Loghill where a large flock of Lapwing, Dunlin a few Curlew were on the mudflats. After a short time we moved on to Robertstown Creek itself and sitting on it’s plucking post was a Kestral having lunch…a mouse!! In the creek the was a large flock of Golden Plover, some Lapwing, Curlew, Godwit and 4 Little Egrets who flew into a tree, we also got a glimpse of another Little Egret at the opposite side. Great day out and the weather was kind to us. 🙂
