Rarest British Bird & other photos from the past week.

Fair Isle Wren
This subspecies with only 25 - 40 breeding pairs has and one of the worlds most limited range... Just Fair Isle.

The rarest "British" bird but not the rarest bird in Britain.

This newly hatched chick is so cute! and it's nice to see them about the island and in my garden.




Red Admiral

Henry found these Oystercatcher eggs... not the most cozy nest I've ever seen.
 The the parents to be were not happy! and made quite a racket.
