4 Dusky Warbler on St Mary’s

20th November 2022

This Red-flanked Bluetail has now been present at Lower Moors for 11 days since I discovered it on the 9th. Today was by far top notch observation as it showed off in the sun for a few minutes

I managed to get these shots of the Red-flanked Bluetail in the few minutes it was out in the open in the late afternoon sun before a Robin chased it into to cover and never saw it again. Yesterday I had the highest number in a single day of Dusky Warbler. This included, single at Higher Moors, the long stayer at Parsons Field and with Higgo, 2 while observing the bluetail. Today I heard one of the Dusky and a Yellow-browed Warbler with 2 Reed Bunting in the west reed bed

The Robins were always ganging up on the bluetail and would push it off

Siberian Chiffchaff

In the last two days, A lot of Chiffchaff appeared have moved out

Teal on the pool

There were up to 5 Black Redstart with 8 Pied Wagtail at Porthloo Beach in the late afternoon

Also some 9 Mediterranean Gull

And a single Common Gull Here with a Mediterreanan and Black-headed Gull

Also small numbers of Turnstone on the Beach

Yesterday in four large flock in a number of places on St Mary’s, I had 3 Brambling with over 400 Chaffinch including some 20 Chaffinch in the garden where I took these pics

These pics of the Red-flanked Bluetail were taken in the glade yesterday where it favoured just of the main path opposite Shooters Pool.

While Martin, Higgo and I were observing the bluetail, this Sparrowhawk perched very briefly before movin on

On the 16th, a very late House Martin was at Porth Hellick

On the pool there was an Kittiwake that appeared not in good shape

Austerity 2.0 – Another Tory Cull of the Poor?

Truth To Power23.4K subscribers




Download11,181 views Nov 12, 2022Austerity 1.0, was imposed by then chancellor George Osborne during David Cameron’s Tory/lib Dem coalition, known as the ConDem government. It meant deep cuts to community services like libraries and social care, as well as to the justice system, the prison service, road maintenance, policing and defence. Austerity 1.0 then, stripped away much of the U.K.’s social fabric, causing lasting and profound economic damage still in evidence today. It’s not ALL Brexit, it has to be said! Even more tragically, a recent study claimed that Cameron and Osborne’s austerity policy was responsible for hundreds of thousands of excess deaths. Austerity 1.0 intended that Three-quarters of the gap between spending and taxation was to be filled by spending cuts. With the exception of the National Health Service, schools and aid spending, all government budgets were slashed; public sector pay was frozen; and the tax burden rose, mainly through the regressive tax, VAT. Austerity 1.0 didn’t work, it didn’t balance the books, led to reduced life expectancy and a lower standard of living for everyone bar the billionaires. So why the hell are we about to be shafted again, by Austerity 2.0? It’s the exact opposite of what I believe should happen. I appreciate all of you who share my videos with friends and social media to get the word out there. Together, let’s bring this extreme right wing government to an end. Unlike those weird new right wing TV news channels and ultra right wing “think tanks” that are always on the telly, I receive no hidden funding. Or any funding, come to that, except YouTube partner programme advertising revenue, and YouTube $uperthanks donations from viewers.
