(Today's Birdguides map - calm before the storm!?)
Curlew Sandpiper - 1
Sanderling - 1
Dunlin - 32
Ringed Plover -15
All the SW corner of Lough Beg, Co. Londonderry.
A Whimbrel was at Mullagh and 200 Swift over the Beg, Co. Londonderry.
Slight improvement on the birdmap too - things are looking up!
