A white-phased Gyrfalcon was seen at Clahane north of Liscannor just before 9.30 this morning.(Geoff Pearson). The bird flew off after being mobbed by Hooded Crows at 9.40. It was seen again at Clahane at 11.25 being chased by Hooded Crows and gulls as it flew south with the wind towards Liscannor (Tom Lynch). The two Eiders were still in the harbour at Liscannor.
