Great Spotted Woodpeckers were heard calling in two locations at Curraghchase today. Reports of the species in Curraghchase have long been anticipated following range expansion in the north and east of the country and reports from Glenstal, Dromore Wood and Castlehewson in recent years. Four Hawfinches and three Buzzards were also seen in the area (Irish Birding/Brian Carruthers & Rachel Hynes).
The first winter Iceland Gull was seen again today in the flooded field at Ballyfookeen (Irish Birding/Dave McGrath).Leave a comment
