The end of May and early June have brought a continued run of classic spring rarities from southern and eastern Europe, including Grey-headed Wagtail (M. f. thunbergi), Osprey, Scarlet Rosefinch and Woodchat Shrike (see report and photo posted on 1 June by Chris Townend at Devon Bird News).
In addition, Tony Taylor, just returned from the island, reports that a Marsh Warbler was singing in 'Smelly Gully' (Lower Millcombe) on Tuesday 3 June.
