Davy Hunter and Rick Hoy 30th May

Re Irishbirding

Second calander Iceland Gull and a Greenland Redpoll on Tory yesterday.

Liz Mc Kenna was on today and reported an unusual looking passerine which she managed to photograph. She promised to send the photographs on to me. "Robin sized black and white bird with yellow bill and yellowish legs. Wings black and breast mostly white..."


  1. Might be the escaped Zebra Finch which was seen last autumn on the island...

  2. Thanks Aiden. I have a feeling it might be the rock pipit which is still hanging around...

  3. Oh yes, description sounds more like it could that leucistic Rock Pipit alright.
