I had to make another visit to Bryher to see the male SNOWY OWL
This IBERIAN CHIFFCHAFF was always in full song and could easily be relocated as it moved around
The male Montague's Harrier that was observed flying over the owl yesterday on Castle Down, Tresco, was seen again on the same island at Carn Near by steve and adrian.
Snowy Owl looking to the Albatross
Looking like a large cat on the down
Going for walk abouts
Keeping a watchful eye on bees
No heat haze today and we got cracking views before being flushed by dog walkers. This is the 8th record for Scilly and my second after the female in Oct '08 before moving over to cornwall.
Both juvenile Iceland Gulls showed very well
Also good numbers of Lesser-black backed and Herring Gulls
The immature male Merlin was still around hanging out at Porth Hellick
Some 50 hirundines also at Porth Hellick
I had my first Cuckoo of the year at Bants Carn followed by a bird singing at Holy Vale, 21st
What a song!! Covered by Calexico and a 16 minutes cover by Acetone.
