Melodious Warbler on Skokholm, Pembs

During a work party week on Skokholm Island this Melodious Warbler was still hanging around, having been ringed near to the start of the month by Steve Sutcliffe. Mike Young-Powell didn't take long to relocate it on arrival to the Island (15/9/12) and we watched this bird for the last time on the morning of 17//9/12. It was quite mobile on the first day , but during our last sighting it sat up very obligingly in an Elder bush preening, bundling through the branches and participating in some very lazy fly-catching! Some video of the bird is found on the link below
