Kevin has a horse and gives trips in a horse and carriage in Westport town. Kevin is a seaman and also a keen observer of nature. Kevin told me the moon jelly fish have arrived in Clew Bay. Signs of fish in the bay, gannets and terns searching for fish. I went out later today and caught my first two mackerel of 2018! Thanks Kevin for the tip. I struck it lucky near Inishgort just after the evening high tide. Then I went to Westport Bay to see the Common Seals who pup in late May. No sign of any early pups among the 20 or so seals at Stone Island.
