The Cattle Egret was in the trees on the island in the middle of Hillsborough Lake before flying off. (Lindsay Hodges).

A Garden Warbler and 2 Spotted Flycatcher were at the east end of Rathlin Island (seen near the last house garden before East Lighthouse). A Chiffchaff was calling at the south end (Colin Guy).

Late news from yesterday was of a summer plummaged Great Northern Diver at Dunree in Lough Swilly. (Boyd Bryce).

Also yesterday a late female Wheatear spent the day in a garden in Brookborough, Co. Fermanagh. (John Young).
