And now an OVENBIRD makes landfall.........

Clive Saunders enjoyed a 3 second view of an OVENBIRD this afternoon on Barra (Outer Hebrides) at Castlebay in the woodland behind the football pitch and Co-op. He saw it at about 1430 hours but could not relocate it before early evening.........

Meanwhile, there was no sign today of the first-winter male Scarlet Tanager on St Mary's in Sandy Lane. Plumage inconsistencies seem to suggest that two birds were involved in both the Cornish and Scilly sightings
