ISLES OF SCILLY 2 - 2021

This was far from the best migration year, we had a diificult time finding common migrant birds let alone rare or uncommon species. The weather wasn't too bad except for a very stormy afternoon and evening in midweek. We mananged to find some goodies: Dusky Warbler was our best sighting but we also located Red-backed Shrike, Jack Snipe, Yellow-browed Warbler, Serin, Bluethroat, Firecrest, Ring Ouzel and lots of Black Redstarts. Common migrants were a bit thin on the ground we only saw singles of most species such as Pied Flycatcher, Whinchat, Reed Warbler, Merlin, Whooper Swan (3), Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Woodlark. We never saw a single Wheatear during this trip!!!
