Bird News and Stuff

Very little bird news, the best of the bunch was 2 Mediterranean Gulls and a Pinkfoot Goose at Larne Lough (Neal Warnock)
A Greenland Whitefront was at Corbet Lough Banbridge and the Mothman had a Grasshopper Warbler at Murlough!

The Black Necked Grebe has gone but the photos still come in! Thanks to Mark Lyttle for these two.

Thanks to Chris Henry for this Great Northern Diver portrait!
Christine Cassidys two photos amply illustrate the difference between male and female Blackcaps and proveing the female was badly named!. A bit like Garden Warbler which has yet to appear in my garden!

Yes another animal that has just read a Nobirds report, this Sperm Whale was photgraphed in Kerry by Ronald Surgenor but dont worry after this photo Ronald put the Whale over his shoulder and put it back into the sea. It swam away happily, Ronald is very strong.
Two more from Ronald of two of my favourite birds!

Finish off today's meager offerings with 3 from Portugal!
