Back to the Future? 20th December

Here's a picture of a Greenshank for Free!!!

On this day.......

  • 69AD – Vespasian, formerly a general under Nero, enters Rome to claim the title of emperor
  • 1192 – Richard the Lion-Heart is captured and imprisoned by Leopold V of Austria.
  • 1522 – Suleiman the Magnificent accepts the surrender of the surviving Knights of Rhodes

Who'd have thought it? but then who would have thought that on this day in Northern Ireland....

  • Two Little Stint were at Duncrue St. Marsh (1963)
  • A Goosander was at the Newry estuary (1987)
  • A Little Stint was at Lough Beg, Co. Londonderry (1998)
