Relocation, relocation, relocation

Our trio of recent major rarities have all relocated, briefly at least in the case of the Gull-billed Tern which, after venturing to the far side of Tralee Bay, is now back at Blennerville.

Gull-billed Tern - took a brief 15km trip over to Rough Point for a few hours (M.O'Clery).

Meanwhile, the two Glossy Ibis which parked themselves at Lough Naparka for nearly a week are now feeding away busily on the shore of nearby Lough Gill. Still no word back on where the ringed bird might have originated.

Finally, the Great White Egret which was frequenting the pool at Baile an Reannaigh, was seen today flying over the mountain pass to Ventry, where it is now happily feeding on the fringes of the reed bed there.
