News broke of a Red-flanked Bluetail on St Agnes, so we shot down to the quay. While waiting for the boat an Osprey drifted over and a Peregrine moved through.
The sun was now out, so it was down to Browarth where a Red-backed Shrike was showing and the Schmitii form of Small Copper was out, having survived last week's stormy weather.
Back on St Mary's we tried again for the Arctic Warbler, but had to make do with a Firecrest and a Yellow-browed Warbler. At Porthcressa the Black Redstart was showing well along with a first winter Mediterranean Gull.
With the weather closing in tonight with spitting rain it is looking good for tomorrow.
