Bird News Wednesday 17th May

A Quail was calling at Portmore Lough RSPB Reserve this morning (per Garry Wilkinson)

A female Marsh Harrier passed Teiges Hill near Brookeborough, County Fermanagh today (Clive Mellon)

A Whinchat was at Ballyboley, in the Antrim Hills (Adam McClure).

Not much to report from the eastern part of Rathlin today, with few migrants other than at least 8 Spotted Flycatchers. The only other notable was the first Lapwing since March. Yesterday there was another or the same Tree Pipit near the west end. (Ric Else & Hazel Watson).

In Larne a Hoopoe has been reported from a private garden in Ballylesson Road. (Birdguides).

Thanks to Linda Thompson for the picture of the Spotted Flycatchers, to Terry Hanna for the picture of the Sedge Warbler and to Lilian Cummings for the picture of the Long-tailed Tit.
