Thursday 28th June

Some sightings from earlier this week... Peter had a Grasshopper Warbler calling down at Ellister the other night when he was out listening for Corncrakes. Michal on Monday had a juv Golden Eagle being mobbed by 5 Ravens just off Gruinart reserve. on Sunday, Adam "the vol" with RSPB at present had seen the Ring necked Duck up at Finlaggan as well as some Siskins there too. In Ballygrant wood, he had the Great spotted Woodpecker and a Treecreeper while on the Sorn, Adam saw the Dipper with young and also a Grey Wagtail. Karen from Portmahamock who is over for the week had a count of 45 Lapwing in one of the silage aftermaths at Rockside, and on Monday evening heard 2 Corncrakes over at Ballinaby, one at rockside and another down below the Coastguards cottages.
Thanks to James for doing the blog over the past few days while I have been away.
