Report. R.Lane. 8th September 2010

"After finding a brand new, pristine Cl.Yellow south of the Pontsmill Valley today, Wed.8thSept.2010 I was well pleased, (since only a dozen or so have been seen in C'wall still). Went on to check out the Pool on which I saw both Bar-headed and usual Hybrid goose, and then to the beach (western end) to look for waders. However, it was high tide and again there were none. However, to my surprise a bird flying just offshore of the strand line from East Par to West Par proved to be a returning KINGFISHER, which flew on up the W.Par River and out of sight ! This is the earliest I have known a Kingfisher to return, though it may be in transit westward still."

Thanks for the report Roger.

Hope the Kingfisher stops around.
