Richard's Pipit

A very showy Richard's Pipit was on the golf course all day today. Running around on the short grass, it was good to see the whole bird, rather than the normal head and neck views.

While on the golf course we had a Skylark and 2 Golden Plover. 4 distant Whooper Swan flew over Bryher and Tresco. A Black Redstart was acquired as we dashed through Porth Thomas en route for the Garrison. The Monarch had flown by the time we got there and despite a few false alarms couldn't be relocated. A Garden Warbler was here and a Spoonbill was seen by scoping across to Green Island.

 At Old Town Bay there was a Common Gull, Little Egret and a flyover House Martin.

At Lower Moors the Jack Snipe showed very briefly with 5 Snipe and a Water Rail. 40+ Swallow and 3 House Martin dropped in to drink, obviously new in and a good sign for tomorrow.
