Pacific Golden Plover, a species new to Northern Ireland
Between 3rd July and 20th July 2011, up to two Pacific Golden Plovers were frequenting the lawn fields at Myroe, Co Londonderry. They were aged as an adult and a first summer. Many birders visited the site and enjoyed good views of the birds.
