Lough Corrib is haven to a variety of bird life but there was great excitement the other day when the latest visitor appeared.   A golden eagle which had presumably ventured across the lake from Connemara paid a visit.  Paul and Mary were able to watch the bird at close quarters for some ten minutes before it was bombarded by gulls and decided to beat a hasty retreat.
