Scilly - 11.10.16


Today we decided to head over to Tresco for the day to see what we could see. But before the boats sailed I popped into Lower Moors where I had a YB Warbler followed by another in Carreg Dhu garden but unfortunately no sign of the Vireo.

On Tresco the Great Pool had Shelduck and a female Pintail and at the start of the pool road we saw the 2 Cattle Egret again in with their namesakes. On the Abbey Pool 2 YB Warblers were in the poolside vegetation and a Curlew Sandpiper was on the mud. Walking along the pool road added another 3 YB Warbler and only my 2nd ever Scilly Hobby which flew overhead pursued by a Kestrel. A brief stop at the shops for some lunch saw the days 8th YB Warbler go onto the list! We then headed around to the far side of the Great Pool where 20-30 minutes of searching was rewarded by distant views of the juvenile Sora that had been present for a week or so. This was my 3rd UK Sora and my 2nd on the Great Pool!
