Started the day on the Garrison where i had a peregrine over the star castle hotel and a blackcap in the near pines, but not much else about. Bumped into Alan, Jo and Rob on the lower broom platform where they had a yellow-browed warbler, decided to give the bike a miss today and have a trek around the island with the lads which turned out a canny day, but the legs are paying for it now :( the route we took was Garrison-lower golf course path-peninnis head-old town-carn vean-telegraph and back to Hugh town, a few miles clocked up today. Best birds seen today were - wryneck/whimbrel/snow bunting/lapland bunting and richards pipit taking my trip list to 98 :0 fish cake and chips at the chippy finished a canny day, could be a quiet few days ahead with these n-ne winds forecast :( but who knows? my target for this trip was 20 year ticks and 5 lifers, so far iv'e had 1 lifer and 8 year ticks, 8 days left to do it! could i do it :0 sib chiffchaff is the target bird for tomorrow at content, until the pager beeps for a "MEGA" then i'll be off like a shot on the bike, lol.
