PAL­LAS’S GRASSHOPPER WAR­BLER

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

Many bird­watch­ers will re­mem­ber when the Pgtips, as at it is af­fec­tion­ately known, was an ex­cep­tion­ally rare bird, in the 1970s. These days, they are just about an­nual, with some years pro­duc­ing three or four birds (with a to­tal of more than 50 now ac­cepted). Nearly all are found on Shet­land, par­tic­u­larly Fair Isle, and are mostly ju­ve­niles. Late Septem­ber to early Oc­to­ber is the peak pe­riod.
