a low-listing tart no longer...

more of a medium to low-listing tart!  After catching up with the glossy ibis at Tacumshin on Saturday, I've finally joined the 300 club for Ireland, if such a thing exists - I think most respectable listers have long since moved on to the 350 club, if not beyond!

Back on patch, 3 whooper swans were on the lake briefly this lunchtime (85), before the resident pair of mute swans got too hostile.

A sparrowhawk over Long Strand mid-morning was new for the year (84). The great crested grebe remains on the lake, but not a lot else about.
