Pécheurs à pieds

Je me suis fais une ballade au frais hier sur la plage de Balbriggan. C’est la première fois que j’y vois des pécheurs à pieds. Ce n’est pas étonnant avant je ne regardais pas les horaires de marées. Et la je voulais essayer de prendre plus de photos des courlis. Je ne les ai malheureusement pas vus.
I went for a short and refreshing walk on the Balbriggan beach yesterday. It’s the first time I actually saw beachcombers there. It’s not really surprising As before I was never to fussy about the tides. This time I was trying to get more pictures of the curlews. I unfortunately did not see them.

Clontarf – Cork Con and Clontarf – Marys

Well what can you say even when you can see an improvement with the Clontarf team it seems that we get disappointment at the end of the game. My feeling is quite deflated we have a decent enough team but I believe we play naively. For narrow 2 Misses at goal we would have won this game.

On the other hand The Third played well dominating St Mary’s and Won the cup. 🙂

So a pick of the best pictures from both games is coming soon.

And a link to Picasa for the rest of them.

The Firsts’ game.

The thirds’ game.

La plage et le frais soleil

Le temps reste beau et j’ai plus la flemme. Donc balade en bord de mer avec le téléobjectif et le standard. La marée était basse et je suis descendu pour changé d’angle sur le port. Ensuite direction le nord pour cherché les oiseaux. Au départ pas grand chose mais les huitriers sont fidèle au rendez-vous il faut dire que vu le nombre de coquillage vide c’est le 4 étoiles … les mouettes le petit gravelo les huitriers les bernaches les courlis et les hérons. pour les photos il y a un peu tout le monde et le port.

The weather has been staying nice for a few days and I have weathered my laziness. So I went for a walk by the seaside with the camera. The tide was low and I went down to catch a different angle on the harbour.  Then going northward to look for the birds. To start very few around then the oyster catcher very faithful, It would be odd not seeing them considering the quantity of empty shells this place is a 4 star for them. Then the gulls, a tiny plover, oyster catchers brent geese even curlew and the herons. For the pictures a bit for every one and the harbour.

Retour du beau temps

Il y a eu une petite amélioration du temps ce qui m’a permis de mettre le nez dehors (avec le Canon). J’ai fais plus de photos de la ville mais ma lentille étais trop sale 😦 donc une seule du village.  J’ai vu le héron mais en vol et de trop loin je n’ai pas de bonne photo de lui ce coup ci.

The weather as taken a turn for the better which allowed me to get outside (with the camera). I did more pictures of the town, unfortunately my lens was dirty 😦 so there is only one here. I saw the Heron but he was flying and a bit far I don’t have a good picture of him this time.
