Bird News Friday 1st April
The Great Grey Shrike was on show again this morning, left of the old farmhouse, Slievenacloy. The last record of this species in NI was in 1983. The Shrike has been seen throughout the day, last reported at 17.00, hopefully it will stick around until week-end. 7 Sandwich Tern - some displaying - were at Cockle Island in Groomsport. A Little Egret was at Belfast Harbour RSPB reserve this morning. (Brian Douglas).
