Here it is the uncrowned champion of all birds that EVER visit Northern Ireland or ANYWHERE. It's official, the Dunlin. No arguments - there can't be any, because we're right about this one (we've got a good feeling about it anyway...trust us) Word just in....yes, hard to believe but a recent poll has now voted the Dunlin the best bird since records began. Who would have thought it? The Dunlin, oh the Dunlin! such a beauty and a marvel, a bird unsurpassed (although you wouldn't think it by the look of it from my picture). (Is that enough for a post? Aye. You really think so? Aye, go for it nobody will notice, it's a Friday and they'll think it's just Derek seeing as he's the mad one. I like Dunlins anyway. Me too).
