The Cattle Egret was seen again this morning at Hillsborough Lake, leaving the roost at 8:06 (Peter Phillips) and then returning at 4 pm (Clifford Sharpe). Keep your eyes peeled on the fields around Hillsborough. It is amazing that no one has reported a white bird in their field during the day!
At Larne Lough 2 Purple Sandpiper and a second winter Ring-billed Gull were at Sandy Bay. A Barnacle Goose was at 40 Acre Bay (Cameron Moore).
The second winter Ring-billed Gull was at Groomsport (George Gordon).
Yesterday the male Ferruginous Duck was at Lurgan Park Lake (Ivor McDonald).
A Little Egret was at Glynn Station and another at Ballycarry (Stuart McKee)
The two Bean Geese were still at Inch Levels, Co. Donegal (Chris Ingram). A further five were at Lurgan Green, Co. Louth yesterday (Gerard McGeehan)
