SCILLY 4TH-18TH OCTOBER







Two weeks on St.Agnes with Laurence Pitcher, Lee Amery, Phil Saunders and Peter Brash. What a trip! A vintage October for Scillies this year, and much of it focussed on St.Agnes, thanks to the bird finding skills of Lee (Blackpoll Warbler and Red-eyed Vireo) and Graham Gordon, who is currently living on the island (Blyth's Reed Warbler and Grey-cheeked Thrush).

Highlights:

Sociable Plover
Blackpoll Warbler
Red-eyed Vireo (2)
Grey-cheeked Thrush
Blyth's Reed Warbler
American Golden Plover
Short-toed Lark
Red-breasted Flycatcher
Yellow-browed Warbler
Dotterel
Wryneck
Lapland Bunting
Grey Phalarope
Jack Snipe
