Another fine day in Wexford

Spotted Redshank, Wexford
More fun on the beach and waders at the North Slob
We awoke to a frosty morning in Wexford. Even after a leisurely breakfast we had to wait for the car windows to defrost. As the sun rose so did the temperature, so it was back to the beach for a walk. Apart from a few Common Scoter offshore and linnets on the tideline things were quiet from a wildlife point of view.

On the way back to Wexford town I had time for a quick visit to the Wildfowl Reserve. Many of the geese where very distant, but this was made up for by a Spotted Redshank feeding in one of the pools near the visitor centre. Also present in the area were good number of Snipe, Lapwing, Bar tailed Godwit and Dunlin, with Turnstone on the seawall.
