Late news of two "megas" from Lundy...

In the last few minutes I have just learnt of two mega-rarities (in Devon terms) that were trapped, ringed and photographed on Lundy recently: a Booted Warbler on 1st and a Blyth's Reed Warbler on 3rd (followed by Wryneck on 4th and Common Rosefinches on 4th & 5th)!! I believe that the Blyth's Reed Warbler is a first for Devon, if accepted. Both the Blyth's Reed and the Booted would certainly be firsts for Lundy. More information and photos to follow in due course I hope.
