ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK discovered by Jamie Partridge on St Agnes Photo by Laurence Pitcher
I managed to get some time off during the day and with the third Pectoral Sandpiper of the year arriving yesterday at Porth Hellick and the possible Tennessee Warbler on Bryher and now the Grosbeak, there must be another yank hiding on St Mary's somewhere.
Instead I had to do with a single Firecrest and 2 Willow Warbler at Lower Moors and in finding a Yellow-browed Warbler and 2 Pied Flycatcher at Trenowth. Of the latter species I had three at Innisidgen with two also at Content where there was a Whinchat and on the lane I kicked a Wryneck that showed very well feeding on a wall. At Porthloo there were 3 adult and a single 1srt winter Mediterranean Gull.
There was a single Firecrest and 2 Willow Warbler at Lower Moors including this bulky looking individual looking like a possible Northern Willow Warbler.
Found this Yellow-browed Warbler at Trenowth
Saw up to 7 Pied Flycatcher including this one at Content
Found this Wryneck showing off at close range at Content Lane
Altogether I had over 20 Chiffchaff
Also saw up to 5 Wheatear
This Ruff was on the airfield (27th) before being flushed by dog walkers. Maybe the only one I see this year.
Two days ago I had this Pied Flycatcher at Newford with another three at Nearby Peace Haven
Yesterday all the Bee-eaters teamed up together on Tresco where there was also a Red-backed Shrike.
I'll finish with BBC propaganda lies again!! On their website: All you need to know about North Korea! The BBC admit that what the have written in this rubbish is pretty inaccurate! All of the BBC currant affairs and news is inaccurate!
As I'm aware, isn't our government stopping us from protesting, boycotting Israel and making strict rules with use on the Internet. Well it's a laugh as we continue to live in fear of North Korea from propaganda of the BBC and western media when we should all be in fear of the physco who is in control of the UK and is funding terrorists and the other physco on the otherside of the Atlantic who is pushing for nuclear war! Yesterday Trump told Hawaii to be prepared for nuclear attack! A siren warning would give the residents 12 to 15 minutes to reach a safe location!! It went on to say that Gene Ward, a State Representative, said that he did not want to be an 'alarmist' but wanted people to be prepared. It's all designed to make people fearful!!
Just have a look at what the The Telegraph said today about North Korea with the headline...
'Chilling graphic shows the spread of radioactive cloud if North Korea detonates nuclear bomb over Pacific'.
It's called 'FAKE NEWS!!'
And here's some more fake news from the BBC...
