An elusive Blackpoll Warbler was the only new bird of the day which eluded most of us. Therefore it was a rather quiet day on the bird front.
On the island life front it was rather different with an attempted murder on the island last night resulting in a helicopter arriving in the early hours and four hot fuzz arriving this morning from Flores to arrest the villain. The doctor had a busy day as yesterday afternoon he was sowing up a birder (Hannu) who had cut open his leg while looking for the Magnolia Warbler. Darryl has injured himself today in action while working a valley and we also have a previous banned birder behind enemy lines who remains undetected so far......
