The Wilsons Phalarope (on right with Ruff on left) and the Spotted Redshank are present at the RSPB Reserve today. There was also 6 Knot and a Ruff, so a nice selection of waders. If anyone is thinking of heading to the RSPB Harbour Estate to-morrow the Airport Road is blocked off, so enter via the Kinnegar entrance.
18 Ruff and 2 Garganey were in the SW corner of Lough Beg at sunset. (David Steele)
Our thanks to Phillip West who had this Jay in his garden this afternoon, what a stunning bird they are.
