a few waders

Definite signs of wader movement around Galley today, with 1 black tailed godwit (112) in with the curlew flock around the lake, 1 dunlin over the lake and 4 lapwings over. On the passerine front, 2 willow warblers and 2 chiffchaffs were kicking around Shite Lane this morning, in a light south-easterly breeze. The sea was still quiet, with 1 balearic shearwater, 5 sooty shearwaters, 1 bonxie and 10 storm petrels this evening. Two ruff remained around White's Marsh/Muckross, with an adult yellow-legged gull at Ross this morning.
