    An incredible/exceptional record but if anyone's thinking of twitching it, you can't - it is a military island with very restricted access...........

    You're right Alex

    very like the RFB of last year in Linosa

    though we did not find yet any Bay-breasted Warbler close by

    ciao

    easier to come to LINOSA then

    No access to the island, which is causing some consternation for many. Over past 15 years, there's been Stonechat, Bluethroat and now the Bluetail on San Clemente.
