Bird News Thursday 13th September

Once again an all day seawatch at Ramore Head Portrush produced a Velvet Scoter, Sooty Shearwater, 36 Bonxie and 4 Arctic Skua (Neal Warnock)
Also in Co.Antrim the Glaucous Gull was still at Ballintoy and a Little Gull at Ballycastle!

Well well well, we didnt have to wait long on those naughty Nobirders, but we were wrong in our prediction of Red Tailed Hawk instead they have reported a Flamingo species!! Not an escape, or a presumed escape but a real live wild and kicking Flamingo! It is the first record for Britain and Ireland, Andrew is revving up the baby chair as we speak!
