Scilly Day 12 - another Wryneck

Another day on St Mary’s and all the birds grabbing my attention were in the Porthcressa area. These included two new ones for the trip – Merlin and Rose-coloured Starling, the former too fast and gone, the latter too far and flighty!

The only bird performing and it really was a stunner was the Wryneck, initially in the small quarry then frequenting the playground. Here’s some representative images......

Just about every angle covered......

Look closely - is that a tongue I see??

Even coming to play on the grass :-)
