Seven-year-old shares intimate moment with rare Caribbean bird

Birds of a feather, flock together… but not for this little guy who seems to be nearly seven thousand kilometres from his home in the Caribbean! πŸ˜‚

Watch the moment a seven-year-old captures evidence of the Caribbean native Brown Booby sea-bird chilling out on the shores of Greystones in Co Wicklow.

The name “booby” comes from the Spanish word bobo, meaning stupid or daft. Pretty ironic considering its few thousand-kilometre detour to Ireland! πŸ˜…
