Masked Bunting were the commonest Bunting on the Island
and has recently been split from Black-faced Bunting. It has
far more yellow on the underparts.
Record shots of a 1st W Tristram's Bunting feeding with Little

and elusive and never allowed close approach. More importantly
it was a lifer for me.

only the male could be photographed.
Hawfinch along the Central Track - 25 were seen on the Island
today including a party seen arriving in off the sea.
