Gull-billed Tern, Blennerville

Gull-billed Tern, Blennerville, 20th October 2015 (Ed Carty).

Found on 17th October, this bird is presumably drawn by the huge shoals of sprat and Mackerel currently feeding off Blennerville and Inner Tralee Bay. One of the largest gull flocks ever seen in Kerry have been enjoying the spoils for several days. The first record for Kerry and about the 20th for Ireland.
