Thanks to Shane Wolsey for the above picture of a first summer female Subalpine warbler, ringed today on Copeland, Co Down. An excellent find! This is the fourth record with the previous ones being:

1967 - One was again trapped at Copeland Island Bird Observatory, Co. Down on 28th May 1967
1990 - A female was found by Dave Allen at Killough, Co. Down on 20th May 1990
