428 and counting but pace slows right down

Since my last update, just four new species have occurred in Britain and Ireland -:

PIED WHEATEAR (singles on North Ronaldsay and on St Mary's, Scilly)

EASTERN YELLOW WAGTAIL (at Pelistry, St Mary's, Scilly - KEV et al)

GREY-CHEEKED THRUSH (photographed bird present just one evening on St Martin's, Scilly)

SCANDINAVIAN ARCTIC REDPOLL (a first-winter on Shetland)

This takes the total to 428 species, just 6 short of the 2009 total
