As usual late Bird News

In Co.Down: The Green Winged Teal was still at Barr Hall Bay, Strangford (Keith Bennett)
A pair of Goosander were still at Lough Island Reavy Castlewellan
A 1stw Little Gull was at Briggs Rocks, Groomsport.

In Co.Antrim: A 2ndw Iceland Gull was at Whitehouse Lagooon (although we see the Nobirders have it as a Glaucous one day and a Iceland the next , thats educcation in action!)
The Goosander was at Waterfoot, 6 Common Scoter at Carnlough and a Twite at Glenarm (Neal Warnock)
An adult Ring Billed Gull was at Carrickfergus

In Co.Fermanagh: A presumed Glaucous x Herring Gull hybrid (adult) was at Enniskillen Dump. It scares the bjasus out of you looking somewhat like a Glaucous Winged Gull at first glance!

In Co.Donegal: The Bittern, one or two male Smew and a clatter of Pinkfooted Geese were at Inch Lake (Dermot Breen, Hugh Delaney), there was no sign of the Cattle Eejit.
At Killybegs, a 1stw Kumliens Gull, a possible 3rdw, 7 Glaucous, 4-5 Iclenad and an adult Meditterean Gull were seen.
On the Leitrim / Donegal border the male American Wigeon continues to be seen.
