Still good numbers of Chaffinches

1st winter Mediterranean Gull at Porthloo

  There were still good numbers of Chiffchaffs jumping around in the back of me garden with 3 male Blackcap and 2 Goldcrest this morning. On the Garrison, in the firthteen minutes that I was there, I watched 20+Chaffinch move out SSW and later on in the afternoon at Green Farm, there were a flock of 150+Chaffinch. I could only find a single Brambling with them in the brief time that I was there. Also in the area there were, 1 White Wagtail, 5 Skylark, 3 Redwing and 2 Swallow.

A single White Wagtail and 5 Skylark were in the fields at Green Farm

  A quick look at Newford and I could hear the YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER and Chiffchaff. At Porthloo there were 9 Swallow flying around and on the beach, 2 Black Redstart, 2 White and 1 Pied Wagtail and 5 Mediterranean Gull

4 1st winter and an adult Mediterranean Gull were at Porthloo

Graham's on a roll at the moment on St Agnes. Three days ago he found a OLIVE-BACKED PIPIT, followed the following day by a RADDE'S WARBLER and today with the Radde's, a BLUETHROAT!
