After a good afternoon at Nimmo's Pier in Galway it was a 120 mile drive to Cork, Travelodge for the night with some dinner and Guinness ...
The next morning was only a 20 mile drive to Ballycotton Harbour for the returning Laughing Gull, it wintered here last year and is back again, as we pulled up there it was sitting on the hand rail with the Herring's ..
All morning till early afternoon was spent trying to coax it in for a standing or resting on water shot but we failed,
It was fly-bys only !!
Realising that the sort after images wasn't going to happen, we moved on pleased with what we had ..
