Mahon to Rochestown Estuary Walk

Harbourside Walk
 Took the opportunity today to do an easy walk. Parked by Blackrock Castle and headed out the flat uncrowded paved pathway to Rochestown. The tide was just about on the way out as I arrived and, as the waters receded, the amount of birds increased. By the time I returned to the castle, the comorants (above) were lining up for lunch.
An Egret

Small waders feed as tide recedes

A Heron keeps an eye out

Cold day (about 6 degrees), so fires were on!


A larger wader. A Curlew maybe?
