At Lough Beg, two Jack Snipe were flushed this afternoon at Church Island. There was no sign of the female Ring-necked Duck seen last week - the Tufted Duck flock it was with seems to have moved on. The Great White Egret was still present on Sunday (David Steele)

A mixed flock of 60+ Whooper and 30+ Greylag were in a field near Craigantlet (Stephen Maxwell)
