Wild goose chase

Busy weekend this weekend on the water bird counting front. Lots of sites being counted across Iceland, Ireland, western Britain, Jersey and France.

Latest 2 counts as follows - Friday < 24,000 at Strangford and just within the last few minutes Gudmundur, Svenja and Finnur report < 5,000 from aerial survey of western Iceland. Productivity assessments thus far suggest 8-9% for the 2015 breeding season, the best in a few years.

Further reports as they come in. Thanks to all involved!
