Home Time

Yesterday was my last day on Scilly for the year. The previous day's storms hadn't dropped any new birds, so had to make do with better views of yesterday's male Black Redstart.

The only new migrants were butterflies with at least 6 Painted Ladies powering around the Garrison.

The boat back to Penzance was a bit bumpy and gave 2 Bonxie and 2 Sooty Shearwater.
Today was a 9 hour train journey with Fallow Deer and Little Egret seen on the way.
Back home now and will hopefully mop up some of the rares that are still hanging around.
