BLAGDON LAKE BIRDS

Eurasian Golden Oriole



Eurasian Golden Oriole Oriolus oriolus (Linnaeus, 1758)

Golden Oriole Oriolus oriolus (Linnaeus, 1758)

(Extremely rare PM)

  1. One, ♂ not aged, 28th May 1910 (D. Carr).
  2. One, not aged, spring 1985 (pers. comm. M. Jenkins)*.

A male reported by Donald Carr in the orchard of Ubley Mill House, is presumably the record referred to in (Palmer & Ballance, 1968).

Mike Jenkins told me some years ago that he had seen a Golden Oriole Oriolus oriolus at Butcombe Bank. I asked him for more details and understand he didn't submit the record to AOG, so it's not 'officially' listed, but I'm including it here for posterity.
