Rathlin Island

Rathlin Island lies 80 miles to the east of Tory and should in theory have similar movements of birds. According to Irishbirding Neal Warnock was there yesterday the 15th April and had the following

25 Willow Warbler
18 White Wagtail
4 Wheatear
1 Redwing
2 Sand Martin
1 Swallow
1 Golden Eagle  Adult (drifting east)

The numbers of birds are different but the species composition is very similar to Chris's total from the 14th April from Tory.. Except of course for Golden Eagle!
