A hard day on Scilly

Sometimes birdwatching can involve spending a lot of time standing around trying to see tiny birds flitting about in dense vegetation. Sometimes it can be very rewarding and other days despite the effort little of note is seen. Yesterday fell into the latter category – plenty of chiffchaffs and couple of reed warblers but little else.

Despite the lack of birds we had a great day – simply because we are on Scilly
