Not surprisingly with the poor weather, no bird news today.
Three White Wagtails (an adult female and two juveniles) at the Mullagh, Lough Beg are possibly the first breeding record for Ireland. They have bred in the north of Scotland and at least once in England (Norfolk, mid-90s) (James Orr / Chris Murphy)
