A few weeks back a friend of mine from the Hen Harrier project told me he seen what he thought was a GWE on Lahinch Marsh. The bird eluded me for a few weeks then I saw it near the Links Golf coarse last week and again on Lahinch beach yesterday
Since November 2016 there has been 9 or 10 recorded Great white Egrets in Clare,.
Ballyallia Lake Ennis, Shannon airport Lagoon, Lough Grady, Lough Atedaun Corofin, Doonbeg and now Lahinch Marsh.
Its a special moment when we discovered the bird in the dark at roost with the Little Egrets
I hope we have a keeper!
