Steve Brayshaw found this Stone Curlew at Kittidown after finding the sixth Subalpine Warbler sp so far this spring on St Agnes two days ago.
In the evening, Jo and I went for a walk around Trenowth and first heard a Serin and then a few minutes later it flew overhead, west towards Telgraph. We also heard a Tree Pipit.
2 Turtle Dove at Carn Vean
This Richard's Pipit was found this morning by Chris and Juliet Moore on the cricket pitch, St Agnes On Bryher, Higgo had single Wood Warbler, pied Flycatcher, Turtle Dove and a singing Nightenagale and back on St Mary's he had a Golden Oroile over Porth Mellon. Mick Scott also had an oriole at Longstone.
Yesterday was the day for Golden Oriole with maybe up to ten birds seen split five each on two islands, St Martins and Mary's. I managed to see three of them. The first was a female 'type' that I spotted out over The Roads from Star Castle just before 11.00. Scott Reid found a singing adult male at Trenowth that Jo, Robin and I managed to also hear and see it in flight. We wanted to get better views and entered the fields to where we could hear the oriole from. However, we discovered that we also had a 1st summer male singing and saw it briefly twice in flight. We also had 2 Tree Pipit in the area. Scott thought he could hear two birds ealier on and we confirmed it for him.
The day before, Jo and I had a Turtle Dove fly over the same fields at Trenowth and I managed to get the Osprey over the quay that was first seen over Annet.
I had this female 'type' Golden Oriole out over The Roads east towards the golf course.
