Thanks to the exile Ian Dickey for this photo of some Stranraer seagulls!

In Co.Down: The 2ndw Ring Billed Gull was at Groomsport. (Andrew Rafferty)
An adult Meditterean Gull was also seen

The odd Goose at Killough (now upgraded by the Nobirders to a Grey Bellied!!) was still present. What would a Black Brant x Pale Bellied hybrid look like??

In Co.Antrim: 4 Long Tailed Duck (3 males and a female) were off Fishermans Quay Carrickfergus

The 2 first winter Iceland Gulls were at McConnells Weir. Seen from a moveing train, we suspect the Chef was in First Class quaffing champers!! (Chef Vealz)
