Highlight of the week was finding this first winter male Caspian Stonechat at Maypole on St Marys on saturday lunchtime at first it was identified as a Siberian Stonechat by myself and the many others who came to see it that afternoon but it was reindentified as a Caspian when images were looked at the next morning to reveal the diagnostic tail pattern ,this was only the second record for the Isles of Scilly and i am led to believe the fifth for britain ,happy days.
