27 October - Woodcock and late Willow Warbler

Tim Jones, Tim Davis, Richard Campey, James Diamond and Tom Bedford get an extra day on the island with helicopter grounded in fog at Liskeard... again! In spite of gusty SSW wind and misty clag, they report visible migration to be a little better: 62 Chaffinches and 5 Redwings! The Lesser Whitethroat was still in Millcombe. Also a Firecrest there and a Woodcock flushed from Millcombe wood. A very late Willow Warbler was located in the quarries. Smattering of new Chiffchaffs, Blackcaps, 7 Blackbirds (highest Oct count!) and Chaffinches, and a couple of Redwings knocking about all day. Tufted Duck still present.
