Bird News Monday 7th August

Yesterday, an immature Marsh Harrier flew east over Collin Road, Ballyclare at 2pm (Thom Shannon)

The Pectoral Sandpiper was still on the spit at Mullagh, Lough Beg this evening. A juvenile Hen Harrier was also in the area. (David Steele)

Rathlin Island was quiet but an immature Arctic Skua was the highlight from a seawatch at Rue Point this morning. Also a good passage of Manxies looked promising. Also two Black-tailed Godwits (Ric Else and Hazel Watson)

The adult Med Gull was still at East Strand Car Park, Portrush (Colin Guy)
