Still Slow...

Very few records coming in, presumably due to the bad weather.
Dermot Breen - 12 geese at Ballymoran Strand, County Sligo, which headed west (towards Mayo) after being disturbed. These included the first ringed bird seen away from Strangford Lough this winter - UHWB - which has never been seen in Ireland away from Castlemaine Harbour, County Kerry, where it was ringed. Presumably staging on its way there for another winter!
Cian Merne - 4 geese at Merrion Gates, South Dublin Bay
Kieran Griffin - just in - 30 geese reported and photographed by his neighbour, co-incidentally at Cromane, where UHWB was caught and ringed!! I wonder whether it was amongst them!!
