In terms of birds Scilly was a complete bust for me… I found two possiby three new Yellow-browed Warblers (they were all together and Leigh and definitely had two in the open at once and what looked like a third vanished into some Ivy) and that was it!
I never even contemplated trying to see the Grey-cheeked Thrush in the Old Town Churchyard and it would take more than a Sora to drag me to Tresco theses days. As for the ‘Pallas’s Grasshopper Warbler – I will decline to comment. I’ve messed up that one all on my own in the past. Best thing everyone can do with the Gugh Warbler is move away.
A ridiculously tame Snow Bunting and a couple of Lapland Buntings did keep me entertained for a while but overall it was rubbish… Shetland next year I think.
