The next day started with flushing an enormous female Peregrine off her kill (an unfortunate juvenile Herring Gull). Another trip to St Mary's followed to search for the Isabelline Wheatear found the previous evening. No luck, but I did manage some shots of the Short-toed Lark, which was feeding much closer to the edge of the air field.
The Black Redstart was again on Porthcressa Beach, sharing the bay with 3 Kingfisher.
Today I moved base from St Agnes to St Mary's, but despite walking twenty-odd miles I failed to turn up anything new.
