Thanks to Geoff Campbell for this gull photo which at least proves Geoff hasnt lost his mind and stopped photographing gulls! Check Geoffs photos on

In Co.Armagh: An Osprey was "reported" at Portadown.
A Pinkfooted Goose was at Ardmore and an adult Meditterean Gull at Reedy Flat.

On Rathlin Island a pair of Peregrines were displaying along with a pair of Buzzards. 3 Ravens and a Chiffchaff were on the island and 7 Manx Shearwater offshore. And i can go to sleep with the sound of gulls all around me so no nightmares tonight! (Ronald Surgenor) That is unless some mad Islander doesnt find my tent and rip it to shreds with a 14" Knife!

In Co.Londonderry: A Merlin was at Lough Beg (along with a gaggle of mad looking horses!)
