Nimmo's Pier, Galway, Ireland ... 06.02.12

Monday, 13 February 2012

What better way to spend my birthday than with the gull's at Nimmo's Pier, Galway on the 6th Feb, just a shame it wasn't sunshine so it's another day at high iso's in dull light...
First thing was an hour at Nimmo's with nowhere near as many white-wingers as Friday, so we drove along the coast to Rossaveel mostly in fog with dire visibility at times. All Lough's were birdless, the carm waters strangely devoid of anything other than the reflection of the sky ...
Back at Nimmo's for the afternoon produced 6 Iceland's & 1 Ring-billed so i got trigger happy again !!

And then it was time to pack up and head for the Airport .... Boooooooo !!

But it's so cheap were going to book again .... Yippee !!

A great trip, with freedom to do what you want !!

Next time hopefully the gull's are still there and it's blue skies ...
