Today 26 March was a beautiful sunny spring day out in Clew Bay. An easterly wind kept the temperature to a coolish 11 degrees centigrade. No fish biting today off Inishoo. Brent Geese are still in the Bay and will soon leave to migrate to Arctic Canada. Black headed gulls are in summer plumage already sporting black heads. The spring plankton bloom is underway.
