Galley gets a swainson's

Ireland's 5th ever swainson's thrush was found in Dirk Bay this afternoon, and what a cracker it was too. The bird showed very well in sycamores, feeding and moving around the canopy, sometimes overhead. It seemed fairly oblivious to the birders below. Also in Dirk today were 2 yellow browed warblers, 1 firecrest, 1 lesser whitethroat, 1 blackcap and a couple of chiffchaffs (131).
