Siberian Waif

First Yellow-browed Warbler of the autumn

Tuesday 20th September comments: It’s been coming. Although light winds have dominated, there has been a whiff of an easterly airflow today and during the late afternoon the island produced a Siberian waif; a Yellow-browed Warbler!

These diddy warblers have travelled from Siberia and with a number of them arriving today up and down the east coast, it wasn’t a surprise we managed to discover one. In recent years the island has produced 10-15 each autumn so we hope this is the first of many.

The amazement of migration continues and as we enter late September we hope more interesting arrivals occur on the island. As always we’ll keep you posted…
