Bird News the weekend

We were thinking of not putting any news out due to the Magnolia Warbler found on Fair Isle. We are going to send Ian Dickey to nuke the island!

In Co.Londonderry: A juvenile Buff Breasted Sandpiper was at the Turf Lawn Fields, Myroe yesterday afternoon. A Grey Phalarope was there on Saturday (Derk and M.Callaghan)

In Co.Down: A Black Brant was near Castle Espie
On Saturday a Great Spotted Woodpecker was at Mount Stewart (Keith Bennett) But was it a wooden carving!!?

Top news was of an Iceland Gull at Briggs Rocks, yipee the gull seasons here already!
