The branch outing to Curraghchase was very well attended however birds proved to be somewhat scarce. Several Jays were seen however most proved to be shy and elusive. A Buzzard was seen briefly being mobbed by a crow, however it was only seen by one observer . A few Red Squirrels were also seen briefly.
