An afternoon at Lower Moors


925 and I spent a few hours this afternoon at Lower Moors. We saw the stuff we exspected to see, including over 20 Chiffchaff. I also got a FIRECREST in Teds garden on the Garrison this morning, but there was no sign of the Yellow-browed Warbler.

2 SIBERIAN CHIFFCHAFF were heard, but it's possible there were 4 birds present

There were up to 3 YELLOW-BROWED WARBLER

Only a single FIRECREST was seen

A single White Wagtail and 2 Pied Wagtail  

Overnight, the Star Castle lights attracted a few moths and this morning I found 3 Silver Y, 2 Rusty-dot Pearl, 1 Feathered Ranunculus and 1 White-speck. There were also 6 Red Admiral also at Lower Moors

On St Agnes there has been a female teal on the Big Pool since Thursday. Higgo made a visit yesterday and told Graham to have a closer look at the Teal. Graham did and identified it as a female GREEN-WINGED TEAL. Graham also found the latest LITTLE-RINGED PLOVER to be recorded on Scilly on Periglis Beach. despite the duck shot on Tresco yesterday, the WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER and LESSER YELLOWLEGS were still present. 925 and I missed out on the DUSKY WARBLER, probable GOSHAWK and WILSON'S SNIPE at Lower Moors. However, there has been no sign of the Northern Waterthrush since the 3rd November.

Ralph McTell, you know, the man who wrote 'The Streets of London' sings in my opinion, a better song 'England'
