Barred Warbler on the Garrison

2nd September 2020

A 30 minute time off from work, payed off in me finding this cracking Barred Warbler only a two minute walk from home in the campsite garden, Garrison

After doin a few taxi’s, I had 30 minutes to kill which gave me time to check out the Dead Pine Walk area. While walking towards the north entrance of the campsite, very briefly I got onto a Barred Warbler, obscured by branches, before dropping down deeper into cover and of sight. I put the news out immediately and some five minutes later, it popped up again and gave me time to get a few record shots before repeating itself by doin the disappearing act. Shortly afterwards, I possibly, just caught the warbler fly out across the path and towards the Sporting hut nearby just as the first birder arrived. Also in the area were 4 Pied Flycatcher, 3 Blackcap and a single Willow Warbler. At the airport there were 2 Yellow Wagtail and at two other sites, I had four more Pied Flycatcher. In the evening at Porthloo, there were 3 Mediterranean Gull with over 70 Black-headed Gull and the Curlew Sandpiper was still hanging out with the Dunlin.

The Barred Warbler was only on view for 20 seconds and despite others searching,unfortunly it was never seen again throughout the rest of the day

There were up to 4 Pied Flycatcher in the area including this individual that showed off in the sun in the big Sycamore next to the Campsite garden

I had 4 more Pied Flycatcher elsewhere includfing 3 at Newford and this individual at Lower Moors

And I finished the day off again with another wader and this time the Curlew Sandpiper at Porthloo

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
