Pottering About

With no new birds arriving, today was just a general potter around St. Mary's.

The Rose-coloured Starling from St. Agnes visited, giving good, but distant views as it joined the local Starlings. A Merlin had several passes through the day around the Porthcressa area.

Very distant Merlin
Up on Peninnis the Snow Bunting was running around our feet and 3 Common Dolphin passed offshore.

Black Redstart on Town Beach was new for the trip and a Firecrest on the Garrison was fresh in.
A quiet day on Scilly, but I would be happy with a day like this at home. Hopefully new rares tomorrow.
