Dublin holiday

Rooftops, Dublin 10
Just returned from visiting family in Ireland. Since it was mostly a family visit we didn't get to leave Dublin much, but still was able to see over 35 different bird species (at least that I could positively identify).

We took a day trip to Bray and followed the cliff walk to Greystones. As we came upon Greystones we were greeted by a stonechat that flew from post to post- leading us away from its nest.

5 hour old, fancy canary
We also visited an old work mate of my husband who is now retired and spends part of his time breeding fancy canaries and native Irish birds such as red poll, bullfinch & siskin. We were lucky enough to visit during the nesting season.
