1st winter Red-breasted Flycatcher at Porth hellick Loop
Two days ago I had 45 minutes of work and half away around the Porth Hellick Loop, I heard a Red-breasted Flycatcher, but could I see the damn thing. I made my way to where I had heard it and after a few minutes of phishing, out it came in front of me with 2 Firecrest.
I tried the Content fields and while sheltering from a heavy shower, I observed an Arctic Tern fly up the field towards Maypole! The fields itself held 15+Blackcap, 100+Goldfinch, 50+Chaffinch, 60+Linnet, 4 Chiffchaff, 2 Willow Warbler and singles of Sedge warbler, Skylark and Whitethroat.
A bit of phishing paid off. As well as the flycatcher coming out, 2 Firecrest also showed briefly

There was also another Short-toed Lark on St Agnes today, with Ortolan Bunting and Tawny Pipit. Yesterday, Graham Gorden found a Rustic Bunting at Porth Killier and on Tresco, there was a Little Bunting and Dotterel. Bryher held a Pectoral Sandpiper.
