Redshank ©Tom Tarpey
A Common Sandpiper and two Redshank were at O’Callaghan’s Strand. A colour-ringed 1st winter Black-headed Gull (Blue K183) from Belarus was also present (TT). The bird was ringed as a nestling on 20/6/2019 at the Smolevichi Reservoir, just east of Minsk and has travelled 2413km west to get to Limerick. It is the first record of a colour-ringed Black-headed Gull from Belarus in Ireland.
