Another day on the Isles of Scilly

I brought a moth trap to Scilly this time – it hasn’t been a major success but it has attracted a few moths.

Feathered Ranunculus
This is a feathered ranunculus sub species scillonea which is only found on Scilly – it feeds on thrift and sea plantain.

St Martins
We went over to St Martins for the day and saw and olive backed pipit, an Ortolan bunting and 5 golden plovers

Grey Heron
Back on St Mary’s the green heron was back on his rock


Med Gull
And a Mediterranean gull was briefly in the same bay

Little bunting
Finally we went to to the Bird Log and someone had brought in a dead little bunting which flown into the window of their house!
