As we were getting off the afternoon boat from St Agnes news came through of a Red-eyed Vireo at Salakee, a 15 minute yomp from the Quay. A stream of birders hastily disembarked, and one or two who waited for taxis arrived shortly after those who left on foot. The Vireo showed fairly well in a Pittosporum hedge catching the last few rays of the day's sunshine. A good adrenalin shot as the week approaches its' end.

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
