Wonder if it's one of the birds which have gone missing from Lifford.

The Swan did not stay long, next time I looked it was gone.
The Coot that had built a nest next to the island on a tree branch that dips into the water has 3 chicks.
A Song Thrush was singing nearby.

The 3 Coot chicks are now swimming around another branch that dips into the water.
It was good to see another Coot has built an impressive nest (lol) in the middle of the inlet / shallow area.
Song Thrush again singing nearby.

I had not bothered looking as I thought fish had not recovered. A pair of Goosander yesterday with a Heron.
I checked today, the Heron remained on the island where it used to be usually.
