17th Oct – Lundy's 4th Cetti's Warbler plus a fly-over Red-throated Pipit

Richard Campey reports a busy day, which included two Firecrests, a Yellow-browed Warbler and Lundy's fourth-ever Cetti's Warbler in Millcombe, not to mention a calling fly-over Red-throated Pipit at Blue Bung. Two Bramblings and two Lapland Buntings flew over Castle Hill. The Great Spotted Woodpecker reported yesterday and still present today, turned out to be in adult female plumage, so a different bird to the juvenile seen earlier in the month. Dean Jones found another Firecrest on the Terrace.
