An incurable need or desire to travel. The story of my life, told in pieces. The things I choose to share that fall out of my head. The places I go, the wishes I want to make public. Here's to love.
The smallest species of Auk breeding in Ireland, a highly marine species which is only found on land in the breeding season. A black and white seabird, with black above and white below. In the breeding season the parrot like multi-coloured bill and large white patch on the face make adults distinctive and easily recognisable at close quarters. The bill is smaller on the adult in winter and much smaller on the juvenile. At a distance can be told from Guillemot by its small size, thicker body, larger, heavier head and darker underwing. Taken on the Great Saltee island, Co. Wexford.
