This photo of an Icelandic Black-headed Gull was taken at Antrim marina yesterday by Gareth Platt, interestingly the bird was ringed in Reykjavik in 2003 and is spending it's 3rd winter here, shows how long some birds can live.
We are running the annual Christmas Glynn Birdwatching Event again this year. The event will be on the platform at Glynn Train station on Saturday 12th December between 1.00pm and 3.00pm. If you are free, pop along at any time, there will be binoculars, spotting scopes and ID guides you can use. As it’s so close to Christmas, we will have some hot Christmas drinks and treats available to keep us warm. Please pass on the word to anyone you think would be interested, and I hope to see you there.
