GREAT WHITE EGRET at Porthloo
The 3rd GREAT WHITE EGRET for Scilly was discovered by Steve Joiner while scanning at gulls off Newford Island at about 16.30. When I arrived, the egret was hidden behind rocks, but after 10 minutes, it flew across over the Porthloo Bay and landed on the rocks below Juliet's. It wasn't long before it flew a little closer. Then it was off overhead and gave surburd flight views and flew towards Rocky Hills. It was relocated by Robin at Porth Hellick a few minutes after leaving and heading off NE towards Normandy.
This was the first sighting of it before it flew closer towards us and landed on the rocks below Juliets
Like Glossy Ibis, Great White Egret may become a regular visit to the islands in the next few years.

This Lesser Whitethroat was at the campsite, but kept to the top of the Elms
Very good numbers of Redwing moved through in the morning over the island with smaller numbers of Fieldfares and Chaffinch.
Up to 7 Brambling were playing hide and seek at Lower Moors where I also got a single Yellow-browed Warbler, Firecrest, 4 Woodcock, 5 Goldcrest and 10+Chiffchaff
