I just came across these photos while looking through my computer hard drive. My wife Olivia and I made our first visit to Tory a few years ago.Possibly 2006! It was her idea. She wanted some inspiration for a painting and settled on some of the islands tractors as a subject. I was delighted to tag along as it was September and the best place in Ireland to see Lapland Bunting, a localised autumn migrant. I met two birders on the way over on the boat, Wilton Farrelly and Derek Charles. It was the first time I had met them both together and at the time they were Tory regulars. I think last year was the first time they had not made the trip in a long time. Anyway I was very greatful for that chance meeting as they found and showed me a group of 5 Lapland Bunting which were a new bird for me.
