2 Iceland Gulls, a juvenile and a 2nd winter were in Ardglass harbour this morning. (Keith Bennett).

Ardglass later had 3 1st winter Iceland Gulls and 2 Argentatus type Herring Gulls. (Tom Ennis, Carol Gillespie & Ray Bennett).

The Spoonbill was seen from Limekiln Hide at WWT Castle Espie, at a distance, just heading south.(Kevin Kirkham-Brown).

The Spoonbill was also seen south of Anne's Point, a Velvet‎ Scoter was at Greyabbey Bay and a Short-eared Owl north of Horse Island in Strangford Lough. (Richard Weyl).
