After pottering round the Dingle peninsula we headed further north through some low-lying countryside up to the banks of the Shannon, Ireland's longest river. It's size is impressive with full ocean going container ships anchored at ease within its confines.
We struggled a little to find an overnighting spot this evening but once we did (coordinates), spent a lazy couple of hours in the warm evening sunshine watching ships plying the river and birds just getting on with being birds. Amongst them were Brent geese, surely due to head off up to Svalbard soon, and quite good numbers of greenshank. I haven't seen these elegant waders in a good while so was pleased to catch them before they had headed for the north.
The westerly coordinates continue to give us extended evening daylight, the sun was still above the horizon at 8.15pm tonight and the glow over the Shannon in the pic was snapped after 9.00pm.
