Scilly day 1 - St Agnes

A fairly uneventful crossing on the Scillonian with Dave Blakeman was followed by a bag drop and 2.00 boat to St Agnes. There was only one potential lifer waiting for us on the islands and the Aggie Red-throated Vireo had to be our target......

Problem was, it had evolved from hedgetop  poser to wide ranging skulker and whilst we worked the area from Parsonage to the church ad nauseum, to cut a long stake out short, it was no show!

In fact the only birds of note were a couple of Firecrests in the Fruitcage. Some record shots.....






With the late boat an option, a meal in the Turks head was the only other highlight after the light began to fall. We will need to go back.....
