ID comment

Hi Sara, these are Pale Bellied Brent Geese which have a stronghold in Ireland. The 2 birds on the right of the first image clearly exhibit a pale belly.

Thanks Chris. You're eyesight

Thanks Chris. You're eyesight is truly gifted to see such fine detail in such a poor photo :-)
I'm coursing myself for not having brought a better camera with me.
