Wryneck at Carn Friars

This Wryneck showed well at Carn Friars

The Red-backed Shrike was still being elusive at Carn Friars and Jack Levene who was trying to relocate the shrike mid afternoon, stumbled upon a Wryneck in the top horse paddock. It was gone 16.00 when I could twitch the bird and on arrival, immediately located it feeding about fifteen meters away under the fence line of the paddock. Ten minutes later and it was now at close range as I kept low and just slightly peered over the wall so not to disturb it. There was another Wryneck also at Rocky Hills today and the Dotterel was still on Bryher with the Lesser Yellowlegs on Tresco. Unfortunately the Tawny Owl that was taken into care yesterday passed away this lunch time.

I spent a good twenty minutes with this cracking Wryneck before I had to return to work

This White Wagtail was in the same paddock

As were 3 Meadow Pipit

On the paddocks wires were also 3 Stonechat

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
