Bird News Wednesday 19th July

The Black-winged Pratincole was still showing at Blanketnook, Donegal (Michael Latham). The bird is with Lapwing and it favours the grassy shoreline viewable from the Moyle Letterkenny end of Blanketnook.

The Yellow Wagtail, possibly a Black-headed type, is still at Myroe (Martin Deehan). (It has not been ruled out that this bird could be different to the one seen on Monday)
A Green Sandpiper is back along the River Maine at Slaght near Ballymena today (David Steele)
The Wood Sandpiper is still showing well at Portmore plus 2 Ruff and a Greenshank. 25 Black-tailed Godwit were on the sand bar at Lady Bay. (Richard Caves)
