Well the weather forecasters have it correct - loads of snow tonight. As for the birds, todays news included:
A very high winter count of 68 Pink Footed Geese at Church Bay in Larne Lough (a
mile north of Ballycarry Bridge on the Island Magee side). 
A flock of 120 Greylag - considered Icelandic birds - was in the next field. 
2 Peregrine Falcon and 3 Greenshank were also noted. 200 Fieldfare and 200 Redwing were
near Mill Bay on Island Magee and 4 Brambling in a garden in Whitehead. (All Cameron Moore)
