Bird News Friday 20th April

22 White Wagtail and 2 Whimbrel were at Lower Lough Erne Islands RSPB reserve. (Brad Robson).
Yesterday morning a Fieldfare was near Banbridge, Co. Down. (Adam McClure).

Also yesterday a Willow Warbler, 2 Chiffchaff, 2 Swallow, a Buzzard and a Kingfisher were along the River Lagan near Lambeg. A melanistic Mallard was also on the Lagan, see photo below. (Rob McAllister).

Also yesterday a third year Iceland Gull was at Black Head on the Antrim side of Belfast Lough. (Colin Guy).

As a clarification the Long Billed Dowitcher was in the Connsbrook channel that runs around Victoria Park, not Victoria Channel which is the main shipping channel into Belfast.
