Over 200 Chiffchaff were on st Mary's with another 40+ on St Agnes
Today there was a large arrival of Wheatear (70+) and Chiffchaff with smaller numbers of Black Redstart (15+) on St Mary's. Chiffchaff were all over the shop and only a few sites were covered. Sheltering from the NEE blow, were over 200 birds including 65+ on the Garrison, 50+ in the Porthloo area and 38 between Buzza and Peninnis. Some 30 Wheatear were on the golf course with less numbers elsewhere on the island. A stunning male Redstart was in the fields at Carn Moval and Joe had a female Ring Ouzel just around the corner. On St Agnes there were 20+Wheatear, 15-20 Black Redstart and 50+Chiffchaff. The remains of the Hoopoe, that was seen on St Agnes yesterday, was found at Castella Down.
