New record approaching..........

A belated record now received of a COMMON YELLOWTHROAT at Trevose Head (Cornwall) for 10 days in October 2010 (photographed) forwards that year's total to 441 species......

Today's first-winter ASIATIC BROWN SHRIKE at Balephuil on Tiree (Argyll) renders that species the 438th to occur in Britain and Ireland this year.

I suspect we are going to see a new record set this year, especially with a week of South-easterlies forecast for this coming week........
