The next installment of our Isles of Scilly trip.

 Grey Cheeked Thrush,after spending hours waiting for a brief view on St Agnes Spider relocated the bird a few days later at Little Porth ,St Marys where it performed well and gave close and prolonged views.
 Same bird.
 Yellow Browed Warbler,one of the 20 plus we had on the trip.
 This female Merlin was sat on the chimney of the house next to our digs as we arrived off the boat.
 Red Eyed Vireo a vagrant from North America and always a pleasure to see ,this bird was on Bryher.
 Red Backed Shrike 1st winter ,St Agnes.
 This was one of our highlights ,this Long Eared Owl spent the whole day roosting in a sallow on Lower Moors ,although partially obscured it was great to see it have a preen in the late afternoon sunshine.

 Rustic Bunting ,although only distant record shots we had great scope views and best of all it was a new British bird for Kerry and me, a great find by Will Scott.
 Same bird.
 Same bird.
 Little Bunting found by my mate Adam Hutt.
 There was a good arrival of thrushes while we were there including this Fieldfare .
