Greenfinch and Dunnock

The juvenile Greenfinch is still around-along with 13+Goldfinches. A Great Tit has turned up in the garden as well, first for a couple of months.
A Dunnock has also turned up today-the first in the garden since June 2011. They were regular visitors ever since I started recording in 1986.
Meanwhile an Eastern Kingbird in Galway (first for the Western Palearctic) and a Myrtle Warbler on Dursey Island are tempting birders who think that Ireland is part of Britain. Still waiting for something to turn up on the mainland.
