The first on Scilly since the two on the Airfield in 1999, which I also saw, and was found by Jim Lawrence. The bird showed well on&off in the field by Maypole Triangle for the first couple of days before moving a few fields away where I only saw it poorly. A truly superb species it echo's the birds seen in the breeding grounds in May.
