Bird News Friday 2nd June

An Osprey was over Lough Neagh at circa 12pm today. It was seen from Oxford Island, out over the lough, circling quite high on thermals. (Davy Hunter).

A summer plumaged Little Stint was in the south west corner of Lough Beg this evening. (David Steel).

A single Light-bellied Brent is still in Dundrum South Inner Bay. (David Nixon).

On Rathlin the Corncrake was still calling today. Also seen were two late Whimbrels and three Sanderlings yesterday. There was also a report from a visitor of a male Common Redstart this morning. (Ric Else & Hazel Watson).

Thanks to David Hill for the picture of the Chiffchaff.
