I kept seeing flocks of Terns flying low over the sea towards Sandymount strand

They were Sandwich Terns

Bullock Harbour, aswell as Howth Harbour, is probably the best spot in Dublin to get close up to GBB's.
To be honest I was hoping to see something a bit more unusual in the air or out to sea, but nada, not this evening anyway.
