Six Yellow-browed Warblers were trapped today
Thursday, 26 September 2013
Calm, clear conditions saw a bit of a clear out of yesterday's birds but there was some notable influxes especially a good count of 17 Yellow-browed Warblers mainly in the south of the island and now two Great-spotted Woodpeckers present. Other scarcities lingering included the Bluethroat, three Common Rosefinches and the almost miraculous reappearance of the Marsh Warbler which was originally ringed on the 19th and not seen since! There was a handful of common warblers scattered around along with a Black Redstart, a Tree Pipit, two Whinchats, a new Tree Sparrow at Howar and the Turtle Dove still while other bits included two Sandwich Terns, the Pectoral Sandpiper and Wood Sandpiper still and a Slavonian Grebe in Nouster Bay.
