Golden Eagle- Possible sub adult Ballinderry Lisburn. This may be another sighting of the bird seen last week.
Not a lot to report again but then that's why you all come back. Northern Ireland has the most stress-free birding out there - there's no hassle cos there's no birds. We're happy for anybody to prove us wrong though.
On the bird-free theme - here's a picture of a Bee Orchid taken at Killard Pt. NNR, Co. Down by Ian Graham. One of our most stunning flowers and one with a life-cycle that could almost be described as clever (if a flower can be clever)
Still, can't complain - people seem to like us on Facebook and we've howled up the Fatbirder rankings (keep on clicking). Looks like there's no doubting we're the most popular Northern Ireland wildlife website on the planet - will the fame go to our heads? You betcha
Anyway I'm away off for a Tawny Owl or three
