Snow Bunting at Holgates Green

10th April 2020

At last I finally connected with the Snow Bunting yesterday that’s been hanging out at Holgates Green for the last week

This morning startled off slow on the Garrison with 5 each of Chiffchaff and Blackcap and a single Willow Warbler It wasn’t until I reached the golf course that things picked up with a single Yellow Wagtail, 2 Swallow, 2 male Ring Ouzel and 7 Wheatear. however, after this it went quiet again as I kicked the north end of the island and as a result i returned home early.

There were 2 male Ring Ouzel at each end of the golf course

This Yellow Wagtail touched down briefly at the Golf Course before flying off SE

There were 7 Wheatear at the golf course

I had a total of 15+Chiffchaff altogether

And some 50 Linnet

House Sparrow

Ringed Plover

Yesterday the Snow Bunting performed well at Holgates Green with the harbour in the background but there was no sign of it today

Also yesterday, I had a single Tree Pipit at Telegraph and this Pied Wagtail was at the campsite

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
