Chumming from the Tory Ferry

I started making frozen 'hard chum' recently with the intention of toeing it in a mesh bag from the back of the Bunbeg ferry (skipper permitting) on trips out to Tory in the autumn.

The ferry passed Bloody Foreland, one of Ireland best seawatching points, and I am considering making a large block frozen chum to be dumped off the ferry when passing Bloody Foreland for anybody seawatching in the area.

 Let me know if any seawatchers in the area are interested and I will try to coordinate the drop with one of my autumn trips to the island.

The other option would be to drop the chum block nearer tory so birders on the island might be able to sea some seabirds.
