Juveniles everywhere!

 3 fledgling Blackcap were at Holy Vale 

There were 2 juvenile Stock Dove at Maypole 

families of Blackbird and Song Thrush are everywhere on the islands at the moment 

Fledgling Dunnock at Parting Carn 

Moorhen bred succesfully at Porthloo Duck Pond and there were 4 broods of Mallard type things!  

In the last week, I have also seen families of Chaffinch, Goldfinch and Greenfinch. Young Starlings are just starting to appear, good numbers of juvenile Robins and Dunnocks and wherever you go, you can't help but trip over Blackbirds and Song Thrushes. While on St Martins last week, 2 juvenile Raven were observed.    

3 1st summer Black-headed Gull was a record at Porth Hellick Pool this evening. Before this I have only seen singles. 

Only 20+House Martin and 30+Swallow came into roost at Porth Hellick and a walk from Holy Vale to Porth Hellick produced 3 male Blackcap and 4 male Chiffchaff singing.
