Sprat. Or…?

The number of sprats all around the beach and over towards Church Bay and Fountainstown was really noticeable over the weekend.  I’d never before seen them all around my feet as I walked in, just flooding in thousands around me.  They usually push out a bit when swimmers start getting in at the beach.  These ones had attitude – like they weren’t happy with their turf being invaded and might do something about it.  

I say “sprat” but some shoals of them looked a bit bigger than sprat and had a different colouring.  It started me thinking.  That’s never good.

Enjoy your swim!
