With derek away very few rarities will be found this week. Does everyone remember the German octopus 'Paul' who picked the world cup winning teams?
Well, at great expense the NIBA Committee have gained access to a Portavogie Physic Cephlapod called Paddy (hes really an octopus). However, we are assured that he can sense rare birds and will twitch leap and pinpoint on the map the species and location (Rumour has it Derek used a similar method to predict Ireland's first Iberian Chiff-chaff recently)
PS if he doesnt come up with the goods in the next 7 days Chez Veale Evening Bistro will serve him up as Japanese sushi
