This morning started in the same way as yesterday. A call at 07.45 found me at Porth Hellick 15 minutes later with a Melodious Warbler in my face. I then headed for the Standing Stones Field, Lower Moors and got the Wryneck with 8 Sedge, 10+Willow Warbler, 5 Chiffchaff and a single Whitethroat. Mark Anderson called to say that he had a Barred Warbler in the Peninnis Allotments. Despite three visits I never conected, but had to be content with 2 Mediterranean Gull and an Osprey that disappeared into the fog. On my third visit, news brake of a Booted warbler on Peninnis! It was an hour later when I arrived and the bird was feeding quite actively feeding on the west slope of Peninnis. An hour later, a few of us sat down and waited for the warbler to come to us and as a result it did at very close range. A Yellow Wagtail and 30+Meadow Pipit also flew over. Keith peplow gets off the boat from Penzance, got the Barred Warbler, continued towards Peninnis Head and found the Booted warbler!
Before this Melodious Warbler was trapped at Porth Hellick, Jim got a Grasshopper Warbler
Wryneck at the Standing Stones Field, Lower Moors
Up to 8 Sedge Warbler were also in the field
Willow Warblers are all over the shop at the moment
All the pics of the Booted Warbler were taken in fog and fading light
