A GREAT BLUE HERON was found today by Scillies birder Ashly Fisher at Lower Moors, St Mary’s I.O.S. The 1st cal. bird flew briefly into a field behind Porth Hellick Industrial Estate with two Grey Herons, before returning to Lower Moors, giving crippling views from the hides. The bird was still there at dusk. All flights on both the planes and Chopper are fully booked for tomorrow and Monday, but with the weather like it is at the moment, there are doubts as to wether any flights will go. Photos of the bird are on the RBA website.
