A fantastic day's birding saw the male CRETZSCHMAR'S BUNTING reappear in the early morning, singing around the walls of the Lighthouse compound on the South End. A total of six boat loads of birders were ferried on by Colin Evans, and all very happily connected with the bird, as it showed on and off throughout the day. It was feeding in some areas of rough ground around the compound, but would periodically hide in the long grass out of view. It was last seen at about 1900 in the same place, and efforts to relocate the bird will start at 0500 tomorrow morning...
