Hermit Thrush

 On 19th October 2006 Ciaran Cronin found a Hermit Thrush near the Post Office. It was feeding in a small paddock and had damage to its right side possibly caused by a run in with a predator. This was Irelands second record of Hermit Thrush and was also twitched the next day by Birders from the UK. As the last 3 photos show the damage to its side had almost disappeared on 20th October and the bird looked fit and healthy. It was observed feeding right up to dusk and no doubt left the island that evening as it wasnt seen on 21st October
