Scilly Week - Day Five
On Wednesday we were joined by Ash, so I spent the afternoon walking round with him, looking at the Upland Sandpiper again and picking up Pink-footed Goose (2), Peregrine and Wheatear and the first Fieldfares of the week. Earlier I had a bit of fun trying desperately to photograph the Dusky Warbler in Black and White Woods, Lower Moors. The image shown is the best of a bad bunch!! The best bird of the day however, we saved til last. Sitting quietly in Carreg Du gardens waiting for Firecrest and Yellow-browed Warblers, we were treated to superb views of a Treecreeper!! This was only the 12th record for Scilly making it rarer that the Upland Sandpiper in terms of records!!
