There has been a summer plumaged Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus) at the Quoile for about a week. It has generally been on the far shore from the Castle Island Hide. It was the first time I have seen a summer plummage bird in Northern Ireland. I have seen them at Minsmere before.
I have a very distant image but here is a far better image by a Scottish Photographer Alister Benn, who lives in China. In my mind a very fine Landscape Photographer as well as Birds.
