Male Western Subalpine Warbler in Sycmores in the garden of St Mary's Hall, Hugh Town
Only the outer most tail feathers was white and the 'tech' call was heard pointing to Western Subalpine Warbler

In the fields I also got 2 Willow Warbler, 12 Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcap, 15+Redwing, 2 Yellow-browed Warbler and a Northern 'type' Willow Warbler. Nothing like the bird we had last week at the pond.
I couldn't see any difference between the 2 Red-breasted Flycatcher next to Newford Duck Pond.
However, the individual in the field shows a more prominent and pale tips on the greater coverts
There were up to 12 Chiffchaff feeding in the sun
When I first picked this warbler up high up in the Elms, by it's large size and pale underparts, I thought it was goin to turn out to be an Arctic Warbler. It didn't take long to realize that it was another Northern 'type' Willow Warbler.
Had a look at the Black-necked Grebe at Porth Mellon and then I had a walk along the Dead Pine walk, Garrison just before dark and saw 6 Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcap, 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 20+Swallow, the possible Eastern Lesser Whitethroat and this Yellow-browed Warbler
The intro of this song reminds of a Pearl Jam song which I can't remember the title of. Music sounds like Mazzy Star.
