Late Garden Warbler at Porthloo

19th November 2020

This Garden Warbler at Porthloo wasn’t my latest record. I had an individual at Pelistry on the 22nd November, 2006

‘Billy’ the Iceland Gull was back in the garden this morning where there were also a single White and 2 Grey Wagtail feeding around the pool area. Late morning at Morning Point, there was no sign of any white-wingers but as soon as I threw out the bread, with in seconds ‘Billy’ appeared from nowhere along with a large number of Herrind and only 5 Lesser-black backed Gull. There were also 3 Mediterranean Gull and in Porthcressa Bay, a very distant adult Common Gull. No sign of the Kumlien’s Gull but it was seen later on in the day by other observers.

There were 2 Grey and this White Wagtail in the garden

‘Billy’the Iceland Gull was in the garden when I left as I made my ways to Morning Point. As soon as the first slices of bread touched the water, from nowhere, there was Billy!

There were over Herring Gull

And from 40 odd yesterday to only 5 Lesser Black-backed Gull

Only 3 Mediterreanan Gull came in including this adult

This Redwing came in off the sea and landed on a carn with the gulls

A few hours later I was at Porthloo observing a Garden Warbler on the rocks at the west side of the beach. I wasn’t expecting that and it showed well, enjoying the sun, before returning to the large Tammisrisk bush. There were also 5 Black Redstart, 3 Pied Wagtail and 2 Chiffchaff on the beach. at Watermill there were more Chiffchaff and on the beach, 3 Black Redstart. There was another 3 Black Redstart at Little Porth with a single vocal Firecrest nearby.

I wasn’t expecting to come across a Garden Warbler today at Porthloo Beach. Like the ewarbler, as you can see from the above image, the flies were out in enjoying the warmth of the sun

There were up to 3 Pied Wagtail on the beach

At Watermill there were 5 Chiffchaff

The sun brought out 2 Red Adminal also at Watermill

I had up to 11 Black Redstart on three different beaches including this individual at Litlle Porth

The kumlien’s Gull showed off at Morning Point late yesterday afternoon with ‘Billy’ the Iceland Gull

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
