The Clare/Limerick Branch annual boat trip under the Cliffs of Moher proved very enjoyable. A calm sea allowed good views of Puffin, Common Guillemot,(by far the most numerous species on view) Razorbill, Kittiwake, Fulmar, Shag and Gannet. At a glance the number of seabirds seems to be holding up well although some felt that the amount of Razorbill in the area was not as sizeable as other years.
