Everyone did connect with Chesney's Icterine Warbler in the campsite garden on The Garrison that he found four days ago. Today Chesney also found a Wryneck nearby at Morning Point and the Icky was still in the garden.
However, even though the Icterine Warbler was on my doorstep, because of work being non-stop, I didn't catch up with it until yesterday and that was only for ten minutes, because of work. Fortunately in that short time, it performed very well chasing the 2 Willow Warbler feeding in the same tree. I also had 5 Pied Flycatcher on the Dead Pine Walk just around the corner.

On St Agnes, Horse Point from 13.30-17.30, Doug Page counted 20 Cory's Shearwater. Graham Gorden took over from 17.30-19.10 and got 42 Cory's Shearwater, 3 Great Shearwater and a single Grey Phalorpe. While out on Joe Penders Pelagic they had 42 Cory's Shearwater and 5 Great Shearwater.
Before all this happened I made a brief visit to Porth Hellick and there were now 2 Wood Sandpiper but only 2 each of Common and Green Sandpiper. I also had a Hobby over Porthcressa which was later observed in other locations of St Mary's by other observers.
There are now 5 Dunlin at Porth Hellick

The following day Viv Stratton had a Grasshopper Warbler at tennis courts, Garrison on St Mary's.
