Arent we glad its not like this all the time



Comeing down from Downpatrick
Stopping off at St. John's Point to look for suppressed warblers
Out all day birdwatching
And the craic was average
Stopped off at Strangford Lough to look at Rough Legged Buzzard
Early in the morning
Drove through Shrigley taking pictures off Lesser Scaup
And on to Killyleagh for the Forsters Tern
Stopped off for Sunday papers at the Lecale District, just before Coney Island
No sign of the Franklins Gull
On and on, over the hill to Ardglass
In the harbour, winter sunshine, magnificent
And Kumliens Gulls shining through

Stop off at Ardglass for a couple of jars of
Mussels and some potted herring gulls in case
We need to suppress birds before dinner

On and on, over the hill and the craic is average
Heading towards Coney Island, to look at Symbol the hybrid goose

I look at the side of your face as the sunlight comes
Streaming through the window in the winter sunshine
And all the time going to Coney Island I'm thinking,
Coney Island really is shite
