A first winter Glaucous Gull was seen at Arthur’s Quay, Limerick City this evening. This is the first record of the species in the City since January 2007. Glaucous Gull has been very much the scarcer of the two northern white-winged gull species in Limerick.
A Kingfisher was seen at the Blackbridge at Plassey.
A male Blackcap was seen at Monaleen.
