3 Siberain Chiffchaff at Lower Moors

Up to 3 Siberain Chiffchaff were at Lower Moors feeding together

  Worked a few hours this morning and then had the rest of the day off. At Lower Moors, I could hear a Siberian Chiffchaff just in front of me in the right hand Sallows. I located it only to discover that were up to 3 Siberian Chiffchaff in the same Sallows! All of them were calling on and off and were joined briefly by a Chiffchaff. Also in the area were 6 Woodcock, 4 Chiffchaff, 2 Pied and 1 Grey Wagtail.

  While in the Jac-a-Bar garden, I heard a Mistle Thrush rattling in the area and five minutes later, I was observing it at the top of a large pine. It flew off and sang very briefly out of sight in the warm sunshine. Nearby at Innisidgen there were a dark-bellied Brent Goose, 2 Whimbrel, 25+Curlew, 1 Great Northern Diver, male Sparrowhawk and my first 2 adult Lesser Black-backed Gull of the year for Scilly. Also first of the year included a Peacock Butterfly. A female Black Redstart was at Porthloo and returning to work later, on the football pitch were 2 Skylark with the female Sparrowhawk above.
