Just returned from another very enjoyable trip to Scilly with a crack team of birders including John H, Winterton Tim, Andrew H & his girlfriend Tina & Neil M. Sadly, Terry T was again absent this year hope he can make it next year?
We are indebted yet again to the herculain efforts of John driving us down there and back, thanks John.
No sooner had we arrived than we were chasing off to the Garrison just below Star Castle hotel on the cliffs overlooking the rocks where a wonderful Black- eared Wheatear had taken up residence. 350 present made the bird nervous and flighty but on a return visit days later had the bird showing down to 30 feet and even resting and dozing on a rock!
More Scillies to follow.
