Received FR24 alert for a rare bird:

DHC7 C-FPBJ
Currently heading WNW over Oxford FL160 out of EGSS
Possibly for EIDW, EGAA or BIKF assuming it's returning home
UN livery
https://fr24.com/CFPBJ/1fbeddbb

Has now turned to W heading, looks like EIDW Dublin is the destination

Now to NW, still hope!

As of 12:30 its current ground speed of 112kts would give it an ETA at EGAA of 14:25
