Andrew Poots had at least 40 Brambling in his Garden at Richhill, Co. Armagh. An impressive garden record
A male Brambling was visiting a garden in Thornhill Drive, Magherafelt along with around 50 Chaffinch, over the last few weeks it has been amazing how many Bramblings have been reported from gardens, all down of course due to the severe weather that has gripped the country.
At Strangford Lough a BT Diver was at Horse Island and 2 Slav. Grebes and 2 Scaup at Greyabbey Bay.(R.Weyl)
