Western Subalpine Warbler at Content

29th October 2021

Adam Hutt discovered this Western Subalpine Warbler yesterday at Content where it was still performing well today

Despite work, It proved to be another good day and I managed to see all the good birds that have been present on St Mary’s for the last few days. It started off with the Olive-backed Pipit in the Nowhere fields with 3 Brambling. By the end of the morning, I had clocked up a total of 5 Siberian Chiffchaff at two areas, Porth Hellick and Standing Stone Field where there was also a single Yellow-browed Warbler at the latter site. Also at the airport car park were the single Black Redstart, Wheatear and Whinchat.

This Olive-backed Pipit has been favouring the same small field for the last six days at Nowhere

In the neighboring field from the pipit were 3 Brambling and a mixture of Goldfinch and 8 Siskin

Altogether I had up to 5 Siberian Chiffchaff including this cracking individual at Standing Stones Field

And this beauty at Porth Hellick

This Black Redstart has been showing well at the airport car park for over a week now

During the morning, news came out that the Western Subalpine Warbler and Richard’s Pipit at Content, were both giving close-range views. Later on in the afternoon, after seeing the Pink-footed Goose at Normandy, I made my ways up to Content and both the warbler and pipit were not showing as good as they were when I observed them yesterday. After seeing both species, I made the short walk to the north fields next to Pungies Lane where there were 4 Swallow, 3 Skylark, 40 Chaffinch and 20 Brambling. I returned to my wagon to find Robin searching for the Subalp. I told him about the Brambling, left him to it and returned to work. An hour later I got a call from Robin to tell me that he also had a Little Bunting in the Brambling field. After work, just before dark, I was back in the weedy field and there was no sign of the bunting but I did count 27 Brambling.

For the last two days, this Pink-footed Goose has been hanging out in this field at Normandy

This afternoon, I spent thirty minutes with this vocal Western Subalpine Warbler in the Content fields It’s only been heard to give the ‘tak’ call and pics of the tail pattern all point to Western.

When I arrived at Content, the Richard’s Pipit was at the back end of the field but yesterday morning in a heavy downpour, it was close to the road and was soaked to the bone!

I had over 30 Brambling today including 27 in the weedy field south of Pungies Lane where there were also small numbers of Siskin

It was over two weeks ago when this Spotted Sandpiper first arrived at Porthloo where I got to see it. The following day, it was relocated at Watermill cove and two days ago I managed to get these pics in the dull light conditions

Six days ago I had a Hawfinch fly north over Content. The following day I found it stuffing it’s face with Hawthorn berries also at Content and showed well for everyone for the next two days.

Tory Environment Secretary George Eustice was speaking to Nick Robinson about the damage Brexit is doing to the economy, but instead of being upset with the consequences George was “happy” with them. George Eustice used to be a member of UKIP and has called for a harder Brexit and the current one which would of course have been more damaging to the economy than Boris Johnson’s.
