EYW and Citrine Wagtail hanging on!

A few days ago, the 1st winter Eastern Yellow Wagtail was still present in the Kittidown area However, it was only seen briefly yesterday morning.

  Both the Eastern Yellow Wagtail and Citrine Wagtail have become a lot more mobile and can be hard to relocate at times. Two days ago the sun was out for the first time since they arrived and I took advantage of the light and after an hour of searching I found the Citrine Wagtail in the cattle field followed by the EYW in the horse paddocks. Later on in the day, Ren found a 1st winter Citrine Wagtail just below the Mermaid car park feeding in the seaweed. It is believed to be a different bird and it quickly moved on with the many winter thrushes overhead moving through including Continental Song Thrushes. There were also 3 Black Redstart over the quay wall with a Black-necked Grebe in the harbour (now increased to three birds). Another 4 Black Redstart were in Little Porth with a single bird at Little Porth where I increased my personal Scilly record of Common Gull by one, making it 14 in total.

The EYW was in the paddock very briefly.

And in the cattle field the Citrine Wagtail showed well

This female Chaffinch was also in the cattle field

Good numbers of winter thrushes in including this Icelandic Redwing at Holy Vale
