NIBirding Tuesday 29th April

 In Co.Antrim: A drake Garganey continues to be seen at Portmore Lough RSPB Reserve (Ronald Surgenor)
A White Tailed Sea Eagle was seen at Capanagh Forest. Its tag is white / black j and it was released in Killarney in 2011 (Neal Warnock, Adam McClure)

A Lesser Yellowlegs was seen in Wexford on Saturday and probably the same bird seen in Dundalk yesterday and if it continues north, next stop is gulp... Killard Point. OK it will skip that joint if it has any sense and head straight for Iceland. Thanks to Ian Dickey for this Redshank photo above!
 Thanks to Ronald Surgenor for the Goldcrest photos and to Christine Cassidy for the Treecreeper shot. Its hanging on for dear life rather like the Nobirds Hierarchy!

 Another Ian Dickey photo above and then a selection from abroad!



 Still not enough gulls on blog recently, above a Yellow Legged, below a dark Iceland and below that a Kumliens!


 Black Winged Kite, incomeing!

 Three plants today, above the Brown Bluebell , then Naked Man Orchid and then Dense Flowered at bottom.
