BLYTH'S REED WARBLER at the play park, Garrison Mark Halliday
Adam Hutt this morning went looking for the CENTRAL ASIAN LESSER WHITETHROAT, that was relocated by Ren and James Siddle yesterday by the play park on the Garrison. He got the whitethroat, but he also stubbled across a acro sp feeding in the same ivy covered wall as the whitethroat. After a while, it was finally nailed as the 5th or 6th BLYTH'S REED WARBLER for Scilly.

As the bird was feeding on the wall that borders Star Castle, I spent over 2 hours, on and off, just trying to get a glimpse of the warbler. Getting a pic was near damn impossible as the bird moved through the undergrowth like an eel. I also heard it call.
However, the vocal CENTRAL ASIAN LESSER WHITETHROAT (now thought to be blythi by call) showed very well. While observing these 2 birds, we also got 10 Crossbill, 1 Brambling and a few Siskin overhead and a Lapwing was on the football pitch
This morning a mega in the form of the 5th Scilly CHOUGH was discovered on St Martins. By the afternoon it was relocated on Peninnis, St Mary's
