The current Black and White Warbler in Scilly evokes memories for some longstanding Irish Birders.
The only NI record (and then second Irish) is of a first-winter female found at Loughermore Forest, Co.
Londonderry on 30th September 1984 and present until 2nd October. It was only seen by a few birders.
It is surprisingly the only Dendroica warbler to have occurred in Northern Ireland. Any Dendroica would be welcome!
Many thanks to Chris Griffin for the photo of the Scilly bird below. You can see more of Chris's birds at: http://featherfanatic.blogspot.com/
