Richard's Pipit at Trewince
With the strong easterlies continuing throughout the week you would expect something of note would of turned up. However, it hasn't happened yet and the only new birds to arrive included 2 Wryneck on Gugh and St Martins, a Snow Bunting at Little porth and a sprinkling of Yellow-browed Warbler and Firecrest. A Golden Oriole was seen to fly from Watermill towards Helvear and the RED-EYED VIREO is still present and showing well on St Agnes.
Two days ago I relocated the airfield Richard's Pipit at Trewince feeding with up to 60 Meadow Pipit and a single Yellow Wagtail There was also a vocal Yellow-browed Warbler In the pine belt.
Today I had a quick look around the Newford fields and was rewarded with a Yellow-browed Warbler and my first Firecrest of the year. up to 4 Blackcap, 7 Goldcrest, 3 Chiffchaff and a single Pied Flycatcher were nearby
