Pretty quiet year this year though I was only here for a week. Highlights were a couple of Blackpoll Warblers, a Blyth's Pipit and undoubtably the Wilson's Snipe which dropped in front of the ISBG hide whilst I was there, which was convenient.
Wilson's Snipe, Lower Moors, St. Mary's
The highlight of the week was this confiding bird that appeared regularly in front of the ISBG hide at Lower Moors. For more images of this bird click on the image below.
Common Snipe, Lower Moors, St. Mary's
Bird present at the same time as the Wilson's Snipe, though in better light, here for comparison.
One of the highlights was this sometimes showy, sometimes no Blyths Pipit next to the school on Tresco. I didn't give it much time photography wise thus my pics are not the best of the bird. For more of this bird click on the image below
