Bird News Friday 11th July

A family party of 3 Barn Owls was at a site between Moneyreagh and Comber (David Clarke).

The Spoonbill was still at the Quoile Pondage in the far bay best seen from corner of Castle Island Road as it goes round towards the yacht club. (Tony Donaldson)

The Cattle Egret was still in the fields behind Hillsborough Park Lake. (Garry Armstrong).

Thanks to Christine Cassidy for the pictures of a juvenile Cuckoo, to Tony Donaldson for the picture of the Spoonbill and to Dick Glasgow for the pictures of the Willow Warbler, young Robin and Merlin. You can see a video of  Tree Sparrows nesting in Dicks garden at
