PostSubject: A long walk to corkwing country   Fri Aug 24, 2018 3:46 pm

I decided on a trip to the breakwater yesterday afternoon, it was quite calm and sunny when I got there and after a 25 minute walk I got set up near the far end. Before I could get my 2nd rod set up I had a double header of corkwings and that set the scene for the next couple of hours. Apart from a few small ballans and one lonesome rockling I lost count of the corkies somewhere between 25 and 30 The other rod with the big hooks stayed completely quiet apart from the hooks being stripped bare. I moved twice, trying the outside in front of the lighthouse and further back by the green light but couldn`t get away from those corkwings, so I decided, as the wind had got up and spray was starting to blow over the top wall 2 hours before high, it was time for a move to dock bach, the walk back took 10 minutes longer against the wind! It turned out that if I`d stayed another half hour I`d have been stuck there till 1a.m. as the roads around Newry beach were all closed owing to a big fire at the marina. We had a good view of it from dock bach and the smoke obscured the whole ferry terminal, all you could see were flames and blue lights lighting the sky.
This rockling has had me looking at pictures on the net all morning, and I`m calling it a 3 bearded as the mottled sides don`t appear in any shore rockling I can find. scratch study

Maybe you've found a new species they could name after you!
