About sixty birders came on the Scillonian today for the Great Blue Heron on Bryher. Here goes Golden Spray again to Bryher with about fifty of them. More birders also came in by air today. The bird showed well for all of them......Robin Mawer

Thirty nine Mainland Birders came on the Scillonian III  today  ( some of whom had come yesterday as well ) for the "Mega" rare Great Blue  Heron which was relocated on Bryher last night and was there again all day today for the newcomers and those who had stayed over. Here they are on the "Golden Spray" on their way to Bryher for a successful twitch....Robin Mawer

This young Long-tailed Duck which arrived here before Christmas in New Grimsby Channel Tresco, then moved for a long stay in Porthcressa until recently when it transferred to St. Mary's Harbour has changed its plumage from winter towards summer. These pics show the remarkable change after three months......Robin Mawer

The " Falcon " on its way to Bryher from St. Mary's at 7.40pm. with Birders hoping to see the " Great Blue Heron " which had been seen there earlier. When they arrived sadly it had flown and they could not relocate it...... Robin Mawer.
