Willow Warbler

I went birding at the Shannon Airport Lagoon early this morning in search of Garganey or some rare vagrant but to no avail. At the Lagoon (SAL) there was one Peregrine Falcon mobbing a large flock of over 3,000 Black-tailed Godwits.  With the godwits on the mudflats, were a flock of over 1,000 Golden Plover, five Little Egrets were in the lagoon itself, along with five Water Rails and a half dozen Willow Warblers singing from the willows.
