In Saaremaa, at Sõrve säär, the search for the Isabelline shrike - found yesterday and lost in the evening - continued today. That creature was no longer found, but another rarity was discovered instead – a corn bunting. Unfortunately this bird too disappeared fast and nobody saw it except the finder. In the course of the searches some more ring ouzels were found near the Sõrve bird station. I did not go for a twitching trip to Saaremaa myself because tonight an old student’s soul is drawn to Tartu to celebrate the Walpurgis night.
