CLUB TRIP TO THE SALTEES
On Saturday 19 June, club members headed off to Great Saltee island, a designated refuge for wild seabirds and which has been granted the status of Special Protection Area. The group of 11 made their own way to Kilmore Quay for a boat collection at 3 pm. The weather was fantastic making it a very enjoyable afternoon for all. With safety a priority, the group managed to shoot, photographically of course, puffins with mouthfuls of sand eels, gannets, guillemots and shags feeding and being very protective of their young. By 9pm, the group were back on board the boat to the mainland, and while they knew a long journey back to the North East lay ahead, they knew they had some amazing captures. [June 2021]
