Two "firsts" for Lundy!
Ringers on Lundy during the first week of October certainly hit a purple patch! John Horton reports, via Tony Taylor, the trapping, ringing and photographing of a Booted Warbler on 1st and a Blyth's Reed Warbler on 3rd, followed by a Wryneck on 4th and Common Rosefinches on 4th & 5th! Both the Booted Warbler and the Blyth's Reed Warbler would be "firsts" for Lundy, assuming that the records are accepted by the powers that be. I believe that the Blyth's Reed Warbler would also be a first for Devon.
