Bird News Friday 31st January

Approximately 700 Brent Geese were in a field at Murlough, Co. Down, but only one bird was a juvenile. It appears the birds had a very poor breeding season last year an tho is the only juvenile reported. (David Nixon).

An adult Mediterranean Gull and a Little Gull were at Whitehead seafront today. (Cameron Moore).

Oxford Island had 1000 Golden Plover, 300 Lapwing, 30 Dunlin, 100 Whooper Swans, 30 Greylag Geese, a pair of Greater Scaup and 2 Kingfisher. (Ed O'Hara).

The American Wigeon is still at Reedy Flats, Lough Neagh. (Birdguides).

Thanks to today's photographers, to James O'Neill for the picture of the Pacific Diver, to Cameron Moore for the pictures of the Mediterranean Gull and the Little Gull and to Ed O'Hara for the pictures of the Scaup and the Golden Plover and Lapwings. You can see more NI bird pictures at
