These are some of the birds I came across on my first day walking round Tory Island in May this year. Enjoy.
Oystcatchers breed on the island (above) as do the Lapwing (below).
Ringed Plover are also found (not easily due to the terrain as seen in yesterday’s post) but they do breed here.
There are lots of Wheatear and nearly always out of range of my camera for descent shots.
This is a young Rock Pipit (I think) Anyone confirm this for me please?
Near the harbour on the beach there is always loads of seaweed with plenty of Gulls scavenging on it as well as Starling, Pipits, both Rock and Meadow, Pied Wagtail and even Wheatears. I will show you a video at the end of this post with this Gull pretecting this fish and also a Pipit that I videoed in another part of the island.
There are Tree Sparrows on the Island breeding and I am also told only 1 House Sparrow!
This time I believe this is a young Meadow Pipit but let me know if that is not correct please.
CLCIK HERE if the video does not appear below.
I will be showing you more birds over the next 2 weeks in this series however I hope you enjoyed the ones I showed you today.
Tomorrow as promised I will show you the Lighthouse and grounds.
I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.
