Birds, Birds, Birds:

Did not see the Black Kites, so nice one to those who have. I've mentioned mine but what is your favourite/rarest/interesting bird you have seen?

Rarest - Belted Kingfisher (very briefly)
Sadly, most of the very rare birds get blown here from far, far away, never to return.
Favourite - Sanderlings !
Interesting - a Merlin flew into my back yard in central Hugh Town to take a sparrow. Then sat on the fence to eat it for 10 mins.

Had some great tits in the house as well. But they disappeared into the ensuite as I was leaving for work. Sadly not an omen as theyíve flown to bed already.

Aye, Scilly does have that exposed position of tempting a few birds to stay a bit longer. Being so small though, the path via Scilly can be easily missed for many a bird. They don't know what they're missing  Cheesy

Has the CCC been seen again on Scilly since the time I mentioned (cSept/Oct 2004/05)?

I must admit, although not rare (for Scilly), I did used to enjoy watching Ringed Plovers and Curlews skip about at a low tide Killier or Berge Cooth, with skirting pips of several Oystercatchers in attendance too  Smiley

Itís all down to Global Warming.  Weíve even had a sparrow in our back garden - that was a surprise I donít mind telling you.  I rang the RSPB, but they just sent me a little sheet on which to record any other unexpected sightings.

You didn't say if it was a house sparrow or hedge sparrow which is vital information for the RSPB and the sheet you have to fill in
