Update on Numbers and Sightings...

Alex Portig has been out ring-reading at the north end of Strangford Lough today, and has provided the first estimate of numbers there since the big influx (4,000 - 4,500 birds).
Miryam & Michael Harris have also been active, at North Bull, Dublin, and report three small flocks there today - 20 flying over at the wooden bridge, which eventually amalgamated with two flocks of about 40 each at the causeway to congregate together as a flock of about 100 at Sutton Creek. Miryam & Michael first reported Dublin birds yesterday.
Liam Kane, also from Dublin, has pointed out that brent geese have been being recorded on the Irish Birding Website since the start of September, mainly scattered flocks from down the east coast of Ireland.
