Swainson's Thrush on Skokholm

No doubt more later here and on the Skokholm Blog, but a Swainson's Thrush trapped and ringed early afternoon today on Skokholm.  It follows records of both Grey-cheeked Thrush and Veery in the UK this week, it's like October not June! It follows one on the same island from 14th to 19th October 1967, itself the first for Britain (at the time known as Olive-backed Thrush).
