Scilly Week - Day Three.

My third day was again spent on St Mary's where I concentrated on the Porth Hellick/ Lower Moors area for most of the day. A first winter Med Gull was with ten Little Egrets in Old Town Bay. A female Merlin zipped through and a Kingfisher was also present. I finally caught up with the flighty White-rumped Sandpiper on Porth Hellick beach after running backwards and forwards between there and the airfield! A Pallas's Warbler showed very briefly at Lower Moors so I went to the ISBG hide for better views of the Wilson's Snipe. A stroke of luck as I was watching it as the Northern Waterthrush hopped out right at the side of it!! Highlight of the day, with nothing much else seen after that.
