One of the 3 Night Heron at Porth Hellick yesterday afternoon
Two days ago we all observed the adult Night Heron roosting in sallows at Carn Friars. Yesterday Robin went to have a look at it in the same area and discovered 3 Night Heron roosting together! In the afternoon I got a call from Dave telling me that 2 Night Heron were in front the Sussex hide. A cracking adult was trying to sleep while behind it, there was a second summer walking around. Both birds showed well before flying off towards Carn Friars to join the other adult that was roosting in the sallows.
This is the adult that's been hanging around the Porth Hellick area for the last week and has been identified a different adult from the lack of a gap in the wing that was at Lower Moors

On the 17th there were some 200 large gulls following a tractor at Telegraph. I quickly pulled over and immediately found this 1st summer Yellow-legged Gull. I just took a few shots in time before it flew off south.

Also had this near adult argentatus Herring Gull later on the same day as the YLG over Porth Hellick. A very unusual record for this time of year for both species of gull on Scilly.

Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes is an album produced by T Bone Burnett featuring a collective of musicians recording under the moniker The New Basement Tapes—Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford.
The album consists of a series of tracks based on recently uncovered lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967. Probably written in the period between his motorcycle accident (July 29, 1966) and the first recordings in the spring of 1967 in the "Red Room" in Dylan's house, where the first recordings of The Basement Tapes took place. The album was released November 11, 2014 in both a standard 15-track release and a "Deluxe Version" featuring 20 tracks.
