Scilly day 9 - Yellow-browed warbler to start

There's no shortage of Yellow-browed Warblers at present and the day kicked off with one as I walked into Higher Moors......

Another YBW which refused to move for at least 2 seconds!!!

Gone but with Firecrest calling outside the hide at the pool, a rather tatty Goldcrest was looking for attention?

And eventually,the master of skulk / camouflage, this Firecrest was as one with the leaves....

Ooops, in full view??!

A spotted Crake vigil then ensued - it ended up Crakeless!
