Scillies - Day Thirteen

A much slower day yesterday with a lot of distance covered with very little seen over the course of the day.

A Common Redstart was seen along the Penninis Trail first thing - one of my favourite birds.

The Spotted Crake was again showing to a couple of metres along the boardwalk through Lower Moors.

The Blue-winged Teal was roosting at Porth Hellick with a Grey Wagtail present toward the back of the pools.

Three Swallow wheeled over the lake and four Chiffchaff were seen at various points during the amble.

A flight view of the Blue Rock Thrush was all I could manage on the walk around Penninis Head in the late afternoon.
