Back Catalogue: Paddyfield Warbler

The very first time local ringer, Jim Askin, set up his nets (at the rear of Porth Hellick Pool, St Mary's, 9th September 2006) he trapped this adult Paddyfield Warbler Acrocephalus agricola. It was not seen prior to capture and it was not seen after release - one can only wonder at the many interesting and unusual birds that must pass through Scilly undetected...
