Three Hawfinches were at Curraghchase (Mike Flanagan, Graham Mitchell, Tom Tarpey and Maura Turner).
News came through today of a photograph taken on Nov. 17th last in Curraghchase showing a Hawfinch (see below), so it looks like the birds have been around for a few months at least.
Five Greylag Geese, 140 Teal and three Mute Swans were at Knockaderry.
131 Pochard, 55 Tufted Duck, 97 Wigeon, 26 Teal, nine Mallard, a Gadwall, three Whooper Swans, a Little Egret and 100 Greylag Geese(flyover) were at Coonagh.
35 Mallard, 18 Shoveler, 13 Teal, 22 Pochard and 26 Tufted Duck were at Westfields.
