Both LONG-TAILED TIT showed superbly by the hides at Porth Hellick
Also seen today were the juvenile Glaucous Gull at Porth Hellick, one of the juvenile Iceland Gulls at Pelistry while another indervidual was on Tresco. The Water Pipit was still on St Agnes.
Both LONG-TAILED TIT showed down to a few meters but proved very mobile. The last Long-tailed Tits I saw on Scilly was back in December '10 with Ren when we had 8 birds on Pool Road, Tresco,
The 2 Siberian Chiffchaff were both ringed. Jim trapped and ringed a new individual last week. How the two birds can change in different light!
There were only 5 Chiffchaff at Porth Hellick
A few days ago, the 2 juvenile Iceland Gulls that have been gracing the golf course for the last week, were almost swept away by the ENE winds
This is the paler individual the following day when the winds had dropped
1st winter and adult Herring Gull
Up to 3 Black Redstart were at Porthloo on the 25th including this 1st summer. Also had a male Merlin overhead.
3 male Stonechat were at the NE end of the airport
A great band from Serbia. They kind of remind me of 'No Clear Mind'
