Friday 19th June
Gary was in touch earlier on this evening to say that the Rose coloured Starling was still present in the same garden in Bowmore today again. He has also been seeing a small group of 6 Chough flying past his house most days recently.
George E. Jackson e mailed some interesting news regarding a House Sparrow which was caught and rung up at Shepherd’s cottage on the 6th of August last year as a pulli from one of the nest boxes. It was caught down in Somerset on the 2nd of April, so quite a distance for the wee bird to fly, and better still it was still alive..
