For it’s third day, the MYRTLE WARBLER is still present flycatching at Old Town Bay and showing off superbly at close range
After spending twenty minutes with the MYRTLE WARBLER on the upper beach at the south end of Old Town Bay, I made my ways up to Content and spent a good hour in the nearby white musturd fields just south off Pungies Lane. On the way to Content, I stopped off at Porthloo and there was the Iceland Gull that Robin found a few days ago. The Pungie fields were alive with Chiffchaff with at the minimum of 35 birds. There had to be somethin with them and carefully scanning through the chiffs revealed a single Siberian Chiffchaff and 2 late Willow Warbler. There were also some 100 Chaffinch, 20 Goldfinch and 6 Greenfinch. Single Woodcock, Merlin and a late Swallow flew overhead. It was while kicking the fields that just a stones throw away, Rich Addison turned up 2 Serin in the white mustard field on Telegraph junction. As I was making my ways towards the latter sight when I heard a Dusky Warbler on Content Lane and just managed to get a record shot of the butt end of it as it disappeared deeper into a hedge. More Chiffchaff at Telegarph but no sign of the Serin.
MRYTLE WARBLER still performing exceptionally well
Robin Mawer found the only Iceland Gull of the year so far at Porthloo a few days ago where I caught up with it this morning before it flew off towards the harbour

And this Siberian Chiffchaff
Some 100 Chaffinch were also feeding in the fields
And 20 Goldfinch
Over 30 Meadow Pipit were in the horse paddocks nearby
As the Red-flanked Bluetail was being reported throughout the day, I made my ways to Lower Moors and spent less than an hour in the cow field where the bluetail favours. In that time, it showed up very briefly but a walk around towards Shooters Pool and back, I heard both the Dusky and Yellow-browed Warbler. In the cow field, the bluetail had returned and this time it performed well but just for a few minutes before, as usual, being chased off by a Robin. The light had almost gone by now and i decided to call it a day after a very awesome, pleasent afternoon.

Grant Shapps Accuses Trade Unions Of Grandstanding Over Strike Action!
Grant Shapps the former Transport Secretary spoke to Kay Burley of Sky News about the on going strike action taken by the RMT and other trade unions. When he was asked why he isn’t mediating between the strikers and the rail operators, he first said it wasn’t his job then admitted the current secretary of state is doing it then claimed that he met with Mick Lynch some months ago. Finally he claimed that strikers are grandstanding and no interested in getting back to work.
