A Bittern was reported yesterday at Lough Ross near Crossmaglen, Co Armagh. Seen in the reed bed and in flight from a fishing boat (Alan Magee). The reed bed is situated in the northwest corner, where the river enters the lough. It is viewable from the public car park, but would require a telescope. Please do not enter private farmland without permission from landowners.
10 Waxwings were showing in Lisburn (Mrs. Shaw).
In Donegal, American Wigeon were reported from Culdaff and Malin Town (Birdguides).
