  It's been a quiet week on the isle. Today I went back to 'Black Wood Pigeon Island' in hopes of a midwinter surprise, but it was quiet. Even a two-hour stakeout of 'The Glory Bowl' revealed no sign of Long-tailed Shrike or Light-vented Bulbul. A confiding flock of nearby Chinese Penduline Tits always makes my day.
