It's bloody freezing!

This Juvenile Iceland Gull at Porthloo kept it's distance Robin Mawer
  It came out on the pager this afternoon that there was a 3rd winter Iceland Gull at Porthloo. No one knows who found it and Robin and Chas put me on the bird resting near the shore when I arrived. By The Way strolled up and spotted my first Sand Martin of the year as it flew straight through. There were also 2 pairs of Black Redstart, a single Wheatear and 15+Chiffchaff on the beach. Later Robin saw a Swallow and over 40 Linnet at Lower Moors.


2 pairs of Black Redstart were sharing the beach with the Iceland Gull

While at the same time, this cracking male has been on Porthcressa for the last few days

  These freezing NEE winds that have been hitting the islands for the last week, are set to continue for another week. Today on Tresco Higgo and By The Way had the first Tree Pipit of the year as well as the 3 Ring-necked Duck on the the Great Pool.

Yesterday around the Garrison there were 2 Black Redstart, 10+Chiffchaff, male Blackcap and 2 Goldcrest
Also this female Brambling was in the same area as the male Ring Ouzel on the campsite
Up to 30 Sandwich Terns were off Bar Point
Still 4 Short-eared Owls roosting at Pentle Bay Max Rowe

Eddie Mair is the next Paxman. I'm afraid father Johnson, but your son 'IS A NASTY PIECE OF WORK' with the rest of his buddies. Remember, Boris agreed with Jeremy Clarkson that public sector workers should be excuted in front of their families. Watch this clip from the interview and discover why Mr Johnson is a nasty piece of work?


  1. It just shows you how dire migration has been if you have only just recorded your first Sand Martin down there!

    Laurie -

  2. I know and Robin got the second Swallow of the year yesterday. Still no House Martin. Higgo asked if you could pass on your phone number so he can contact you. Somethin to do with those covers I think?

  3. Boris Johnson comes across like a naughty 14 year old school boy straight from Tom Brown's School days! Constantly on the verge of bursting into a full belly laugh when he thinks about the dreadful things he is accused of. If he was given a "jolly good caning" by a couple of his chums he would probably enjoy it. God forbid he ever seeks high office. :-(
