Local Asshole Now Local Asshole With Blog: The Twisted Brain Wrong of a One-Off Man-Mental
Read the review. Sounds like a nice anthology. I was in Stephen's Green yesterday and was surprised that the lake was still largely iced over. Maybe you can tell me what this bird is? A wader or rail? I've seen it before and feel I should know the name, but cannot find it online (in the Wiki selection of Irish birds, etc.). Black and white, short red beak and big yellow legs.

A moor-hen, surely.'I count those feathered balls of soot /The moor-hen guides upon the stream...'Lots of oystercatchers too along Sandymount Strand at this time of year, I noticed, the other week.
Yes, a moorhen! I actually thought that's what it might be, but didn't trust my instinct enough when someone else said I was wrong. I have a couple of good bird books, including that dual Irish/English one that was published over a decade ago, but they've been temporally misplaced in some shuffle or other.
