Ireland 2013 - Dublin

Our annual holiday this year is back to Ireland. The first week we spent in Dublin, the weather was quite variable, and I only really got out to Howth once, on . Very nice to see the seabird colonies again though, with nesting Kittiwake, Fulmar, Razorbill and Guillemot. A Peregrine briefly caused a flutter, and Grey Seal and Harbour Porpoise put in a show for the mammals.

Male Eurasian Bullfinch.
This Peregrine caused quite a bit of mayhem as it shot past the breeding birds at Howth Head.

Lots of Razorbill at Howth.
Dunnock. I've missed these!
