No Orangemen at the RSPB Reserve

The Parades Commision have banned summer plumage Godwits and Knot from the RSPB Reserve. After complaints from more dowdy waders like Greenshanks and Curlews the Parades Commision have banned summer plumaged Knots and Godwits from the reserve until they moult into winter plumage. They are also not welcome at Lough Beg although the residents of the Shankill Road are currently digging out a wader pool at the top of the road for them to at least have a wash!
