In a garden at Ballyellery,
A few Starlings were feeding on on New Zealand flax and were covered in Orange pollen.
New Zealand Flax uses birds to pollinate and the Starlings bill shape seems to fit nicely.
Down in the northern corner of Lahinch Marsh in Ballyellery is a small reed bed and swamp.
Several Male Grasshopper Warblers were singing again as were Sedgys , Reed Buntings and Waterrail
I caught sight of a Grasshopper Warbler low in a thicket , it showed briefly and im pretty sure it was a juvenile, not a common sight and possibly my 1st.
