On this date.

18th December 1955 was the surprising late date that the first Greater Yellowlegs was seen in Northern Ireland. Found at Downpatrick Marshes Co.Down. Since that date there have been another 4 records. The last record was a well watched individual which turned up at the Quiole Pondage Co.Down in 2004 and it stayed from the 24th May until the 15th June.
