25 October - Little Bunting and Reed Warbler

Tim Jones reports a Little Bunting on Castle Hill first thing. An Acrocephalus warbler in the gully below St Helen's Copse that we tentatively identified as a European (Common) Reed Warbler after hours of observation and lots of photos! Tufted Duck still there, plus one Snow Bunting. A glimmer of visible migration with 150 Chaffinches, but an all-island, all-day, thrush total of 2 Blackbird & 2 Song Thrush! Out at sea off East Side, 500 Kittiwake, 2 Bonxie, 2 Arctic Skua, 1 Pomarine Skua and 1 Balearic Shearwater. Few Chiffchaffs, Goldcrests and 2 Blackcaps. No Swallows.
