Wicklow Mountains - 26th July

On my last full day I decided to explore the Wicklow mountains area, and it was gorgeous. I shall have to return here as the birds were great. The streams held fairly easy-to-see Dippers, there were Ravens all over the place, Stonechats in the valleys, and a pair of Merlins showing very well at a conifer plantation.

A pair of Merlins were perched on a dead tree as soon as I arrived at the plantation area.
