Yellowhammer in the Burren © Liam Jones
The Dawn Chorus outing, to the Mullaghmore area of the Burren, was most enjoyable on a dry calm morning. Of note were the following, three male Blackcap, six Whitethroat, four Common Sandpiper, two Little Egret, two Sedge Warbler, one Wheatear and one male Yellowhammer. Five Cuckoo were calling. Two of these were nearby as the outing was drawing to a close.
A male Blackcap was at Ballyallia Lake.
