I'm currently on an extended long-distance twitch, and I'm seeing loads and loads. I know I've been to Shetland a few times, and the Scillies too, but I never genuinely believed that offshore islands could be this good. This place is amazing, but I'm going to be writing descriptions for the next fifteen years, as almost every bird I see is a tick. It's warmer than St Mary's, and not as windy as Sumburgh, but other than that broadly similar. More frogs perhaps, but that would be about it.
