Bird News!

It's been a long day, with lots of miles covered, plenty of birds counted and some corking highlights. Amongst the best bits were: Collared Flycatcher, 2 Subalpine Warblers (the female still at Lower Stonybrek and the male Eastern bird at the Obs this evening where it was trapped), 2 Wood Warblers, 4 Black Redstarts, 9 Redstarts (all males), 17 Tree Pipits,15 Blackcaps and a Pied Flycatcher (a male and our first of the year, found about 15 minutes before and 300m north of the Collared Fly!)

A few Lapland Buntings are scattered around the island, none as fine as this male near the Ringing Hut.

This Wood Warbler was on the same cliff as the Collared Fly.

Male Collared Flycatcher found by Jason and Sarah in South Krojeals (at the south of Hoini Geo) this morning - fantastic! Surely one of the birds of the year already.
