Little Bunting

Hi Peter,
Theo and I were on Tory today. On the boat out from Bunbeg were 10+ Great Northern Divers and Theo had brief views of 3 Minke Whales.  On return the usual flock of Barnacle Geese were on Inishbofin and numbered probably over 100 but difficult to estimate.
The list for the island as follows:
Barnacle Goose  1 north over west town
Kestrel  1
Fieldfare  c.6 
Redwing  60+
Song Thrush  c.10
Blackbird  c.6
Robin  1/2
Dunnock  1
Blackcap  3/4
Chiffchaff  6/7
Chaffinch  1/2
Goldfinch  1
Little Bunting  1 around the houses by the magic bush
Regards Chris

6th Island record. About 40+ Irish records mostly from Cork
