After heavy rain over night it has been glorious on today on Scilly. Stayed on St Mary's and covered a fair bit of ground when the lads arrived on Sillonian at noon. The Short-toed Lark was still showing, distantly, at the air field with a much closer Snow Bunting. A Peregrine powered overhead. Clouded Yellow were charging all over the island.
We found a Yellow-browed Warbler by the road just north of Normanby Farm, but proved difficult to get a photo.
A Willow Warbler at Holy Vale was the first of the week and a Firecrest was quickly found at Carreg Dhu, feeding with Goldcrest. Also here was a Reed Warbler feeding high in a bush with Blackcap. Good numbers of Swallow today with one flock of 12.
