I’ve not posted for a couple of weeks due to a slight injury. I’m back driving but still limited in my walking. So with the sun shining and being house bound for a while I grabbed the camera and went along the coast for a short drive. Not many shots but still a beautiful day with bright sunshine and a cold wind. A couple of shots were taken taken from leaning on the open door for support and the rest seated in the car.
This first is of the common Buzzard with a crow heading his way to chase him off.
this was shot from the car park at Cloughy rocks. These rocks become small islands when the tide is out and today there was a lot of seals around. These two where on the closest one. We have two type of seals common here in Ireland. These are Grey seals pictured and the other the Common or Harbour seal.
This little Robin sat posing in the sun a few feet from where I was parked, he kept returning so here he is. They have a great voice and if you whistle back you will soon have a duet going.
This last one is looking across the bay to Killard Point Nature reserve. Killard point
From here the coast turns into the sun so following it around to the village of Clough. I turned north and the road home.
Thank you for visiting.

Sure hope you are healing up well! Arthritis is my permanent friend (who doesn’t want to leave)! 🙂
I hope you recover well from your injury 🙂
Thank you, thankfully its nothing major. More an inconvenience.
Glad you are able to go out. Speedy recovery.
I would love to hear the ‘duet’ but definitely not from me because I can’t whistle. hahhahaha.
Thank you, never met anyone who could not whistle, even a little bit. 😯💨🎶🎶
I miss the sea shore to a degree but where I am from in south Florida, USA it is condominium development every inch. Now live 200 miles inland in North Carolina and picturing those condos row by row like sun baked white dominoes I really don’t miss it as there was no natural beauty as in your photos.
I’m lucky that I live on an small island and the coast is never far away. Ireland has a great range of coastal habitats that remain unspoilt and may it remain so.
