Arrived yesterday with Stu and there has already been plenty of brent watching around Alftanes and Seltjarnarnes, despite today being cut short slightly by some fairly unpleasant weather. This has included seeing some of the birds we caught this winter in Dublin which is pretty cool!

Brent geese at Seltjarnarnes Golf course

22BB and 44BB - juveniles caught in South Dublin in February

The scenery is amazing, particularly on the drive north to Blautos and Hvalfjordur, and have seen lots of other awesome birds including two stunning drake Harlequins earlier today.

Fieldwork proper starts tomorrow!!

  1. Looking good Matt!
    My colleague Adam noted these two birds near Portaferry (Strangford Lough) on 13th April, clearly as they pushed northwards along the Irish east coast
