River Tolka Finglas: birds sighted apart from the norm... A darting Kingfisher & Dipper, a family of Tufted Ducks now in the lower pond, Bullfinches feeding on the thistle heads, two Goldcrest, a small clan of Long-tailed Tits and a single Little Egret. But best of all was the view I was given by a family of five Grey Wagtails fly-fishing in the air, all moving to fast to get a descent shot with my walkabout camera, so decided to concentrate on one to video while I watched the others around me.  BC.   See Brian's Grey Wagtail Video link - https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=WBiHOpk3quo&list= UUnIwxADDHhcovz7c9ClpxNQ.
