2 Woodcock and a Pink Footed Goose were at Belfast Lough RSPB Reserve (Gerard McGeehan). A Woodcock, 25 Snipe, 20 Golden Plover, 20 Lapwing and a few Skylark were at Ramore Head - all unusual birds for there (Matthew Tickner).
Out at Killard, Co Down today, 3 Woodcock and an estimate of 3000 Linnets if not more, were feeding in a
field opposite where you park to walk out to Killard (Craig Nash). When they are disturbed it looks like a miniature starling flock swirling around in the sky. Craig has also put some footage on You Tube showing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vk0DUEKD8ko
