 Plenty of action by the Dargle River at the People’s Park, Lower Dargle Road, Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland yesterday, January 22nd 2021

Male and female mallard

Black headed gull in winter plumage. In summer it has the black head (actually it is dark brown). In winter it just has the dark spot behind the eye. They were the most predominant gull in the People’s Park yesterday

This black gull was fishing yesterday. It was a first for us to see this particular one fishing

It would swim along looking intensely into the water

then up into the air

then the dive!!!! It was fantastic to see

There were quite a few transathlantic planes in the air. This one was in transit Paris to JFK.

 

There was a feeding frenzy and these gulls were competing in a big way for the food being given to them

One of the lucky ones flying off with it’s prize !!!!

Some early daffodils to lift the spirits

The moon was quite visible in the afternoon sky
