........And yet another GARGANEY

In addition to the birds in Britain, and the male near Ennis, there was a drake GARGANEY at Carrigrennan, near Little Island, in Cork Harbour on 7th Feb, seen by Brian Lynch. This bird has been seen for 3-4 years running now, always around February, and, while it is possible that it may not be wild, it is unringed, fully winged, isn't especially tame and none are held, as far as I know, at Fota Wildlife Park (Harry Hussey)
