A Very Rare Bird
This picture was taken by our own rare bird man Eric Dempsey. It is a bird called an Elegant Tern. Eric and widlife artsit Michael O'Clery found this bird last Tuesday (19th July) on Gormanstown Strand, Meath.
It is a bird of the Pacific Ocean and is only the 5th time the species has been recorded in Ireland. It stayed for only 12 minutes before flying back out to sea.
