I made it to Tory but it turned out to be a short visit. I had to work Saturday morning so the early boat was out of the question and this morning I got a couple of hours birding in before the weather closed in. With strong southerly winds I didn't want to take a chance on the last boat not running so I took the 10:30.
Thanks for your help, my list of sightings is below. I spoke to Anthony and he said to say hello.
I had a Corncrake calling in Magheroarty in a field near the east car park. A local saw me looking into the field and came down wanting to know why I was photographing the land! Something to do with the NPWS apparently.
Wigeon (one on Lough Ahooey)
possible Merlin north of West Town, but only got a glimpse
Corncrake, 3 West town and at least two in East town
Lesser black-backed Gull
Great black-backed Gull
