Three comments

Attractive slow reel - heard played on Low D whistle by a great exponent of the instrument, Rory Campbell on "Field Of Bells"

Adjusted transcription

This what I think I hear Rory play. Note that in the first bar of lines 3 & 4, Rory slides up to the high G.

Further adjustment

I’ve now changed the mode to Dorian and transcribed the opening air-like bars of introduction that Rory plays.
