Cattle Egret

A local birdwatcher, Trevor Browne, came across a small group of Cattle Egrets near Mungret on the outskirts of Limerick City last week (28/3/17).  At least two birds were present initially, rising to four by the weekend.  I got out to see them on Saturday (1/4/2017) and managed to get a few photos.

This is the fourth record for Limerick, following on from a single bird at Castletroy in January 2016, a flock of five near Bruff in February 2013 and two birds at Loghill in January 2008.
