More Whimbrel

After 2 Black Redstart on Porthcressa and a stroll around the Garrison it was onto the boat for Tresco from where we had a Spoonbill.


 First stop on Tresco was the Hudsonian Whimbrel, which was showing well on arrival, but after a short flight, showed superbly.

The field just behind Gimble Porth held 2 Lapland Bunting and 4 Skylark.

The rest of the day was spent on Tresco seeing pretty much the same as the other day, with the addition of 2 Sanderling, a Whinchat and 2 Yellow-browed Warbler. At least one Red Squirrel was seen near the Abbey Gardens.

Back on St Mary's we headed up Peninnis, passing the Blyth's Pipit to the fields at the end where 2-3 Ring Ouzel were showing.
