Andy Holden found this adult Kumlien's Gull at Porthcressa but it soon moved to Morning Point where this photo was taken
As usual everyone was predicting what would turn up on Scilly from Storm Eleanor but no one was expecting another SNOWY OWL!! It was found by Viv Jackson on st Martins going to roost on White island. It's white apparently ruling out the individual that was on Bryher over a month ago before being relocated in SW Cornwall.
Adult Kumlien's and juvenile Glaucous Gull together at Pilchard Pool, Porthcressa
Adult Kumlien's Gull showing off at Morning Point This only my forth Scilly Kumlin's Gull and was my first adult that I've seen
Then the Kumlien's Gull was joined by this juvenile Iceland Gull shortly afterwards and when Martin and I left Morning Point, one of the Glaucous Gulls came in seen by other observers
Thanks from a call of Martin Goodey telling me that the 2 Black-necked Grebe and Red-breasted Mergenser were close into the houbour showing well, I had a rest from gulls and got pics of them all in the bad light
A lot of us arranged to finish the last hour at Porthcressa and got the Kumlien's and single Glaucous and Iceland Gull and the only new gull was an adult Yellow-legged Gull.
I was driving my wagon to the airport when Bobby 'Dazzler' Dawson let me know that he had one of the juvenile Glaucous Gulls at Porthcressa. The couple that were in me wagon were birders and wanted to see it. So we did and observed fly out towards Morning Point. Work does have it's advantages now and then.
4 birders also went to Tresco and had Yellow-browed Warbler, 2 Siberian Chiffchaff and single juvenile Iceland and Glaucous Gull.
First view I had of the adult Iceland Gull on the roof of the tip
The Adult Iceland Gull briefly showed well before flying off towards Porthmellon
After couple of solo performances as a singer songwriter, Dukat Stray a.k.a. Stray Dogg decided to form a band in the winter of 2011 with Ana (violin), and Jelena (piano), girls who are Music Academy (Belgrade) graduates.
The band performed as a backup to Chinawoman and Scout Niblett after only couple of months practice, with a 4 song Demo only availible. The band needed another guitar player, and that’s when Marko from the Belgrade electropop band Inje, joined Stray Dogg band to play lead guitar. The band recorded their first album in 2011, called 'Almost', and published their first single. In 2012 they released the second album, 'Fire's never wrong', which featured a collaboration with the famous american singer songwriter Devendra Banhart, on the future single 'Time'. Vladimir Milicevic on bass, and Relja Ilic on drums joined, to form the final line up of the band.
The band played some big concerts, and almost every important festival in the region.
In 2015. in October Stray Dogg published their third album 'Come Along Wind', and now are touring and promoting their final album.
