Rustic Bunting ringed at Porth Hellick

what a shock when Jim pulled this female Rustic Bunting out of the nets at Porth Hellick! Robin Mawer

The only other Rustic Bunting that I've observed outside the Oct/Nov period was a cracking male found by Paul Stancliffe at Carn Friars in March. I was busy watching a summer plumage Pied-billed Grebe on Porth Hellick when I got the shout. The bottom pic was taken by Robin Mawer

Low is an American indie rock[1] group from Duluth, Minnesota, formed in 1993. The music of Low is characterized by slow tempos and minimalist arrangements. Early descriptions sometimes referred to it as rock subgenre called "slowcore". However, Low's members ultimately disapproved of the term. Parker and Sparhawk's striking vocal harmonies represent perhaps the group's most distinctive element; critic Denise Sullivan writes that their shared vocals are "as chilling as anything Gram and Emmylou ever conspired on—though that's not to say it's country-tinged, just straight from the heart."

Rose-coloured Starling in Joe's garden!

Joe Pender got a surprise when this 1st summer male Rose-coloured Starling turned up his garden late this afternoon in Hugh Town

It was very aggresive to any birds that came too close 

It's a long time since I've seen an adult. What a cracking bird!

My first Humming-bird Hawkmoth of the year was on the Garrison a few days ago.

I'm sure a lot of you are glued to 'FARGO' on channel 4 starring Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo and Martin Freeman also stars. How many of you knew that he is also a singer songwriter as well as a screenwriter and director. I'm not keen on any of his songs, infact there crap! That's my opinion. However, this one is bloody good!
