A first summer Marsh Harrier  passed through the Coonagh Nature Reserve today. The bird came in along the river bank from the Cratloe side and disappeared from view heading south eastwards towards Bunlickey (Tom Tarpey).  This is the second record for the site and the third in modern times for Limerick.

Three Garganey, five Wigeon, four Gadwall, 20 Mallard, 40 Tufted Duck and a Pochard were also at Coonagh along with large numbers of Coot, Littel Grebes, smaller numbers of Great-crested Grebes, Mute Swans, a Heron and a Little Egret.
