Two "firsts" for Lundy confirmed by BBRC

The British Birds Rarities Committee (BBRC) has accepted the records of the Booted Warbler and Blyth's Reed Warbler trapped and ringed on Lundy in the first week of October last year by John Horton and John Haddaway. These are the first confirmed records of either species for the island, and the Blyth's Reed Warbler was also a species new to the County of Devon. The Booted Warbler was mist-netted in Millcombe on 1st October, swiftly followed by the Blyth's Reed Warbler on 3rd.
