Some more sightings through from David & Jenny from yesterday. From the hide at Gruinart they had 20 Shoveler, 12 Pintail, 7 Gadwall, 1 Little Grebe, 5 Whooper Swan, along with numerous Teal, Wigeon & Mallard. Waders seen were 2 Greenshank, 10 Redshank, 70 Dunlin, 3 Snipe & 2 Black tailed Godwit, a female Hen Harrier was also seen from the hide too. Later on at Saligo, a Merlin was seen and at Ballinaby a Glaucous Gull was present. So in total, that is 100 species this week, time possibly for a few more before they head for home at the start of next week!!!
