Observers: Niall T. Keogh & Noel Keogh.
Sooty Shearwater: 4

A 15 minute look from The Bridges in the morning revealed just one Manx! As such the majority of the day was spent stomping around the fields & ditches of Loop Head & checking the gardens in Kilbaha for migrants...again. 2 European Golden Plover & 10 Wheatear the only apparent 'new' birds. A flock of 12 Chough at The Fodry was good to see also. At nearby Rinevella Bay, 2 or 3 juv Curlew Sandpipers were the best amongst a nice flock of waders & gulls.
