A quiet trip across to Tresco today, with no sign of the Spotted Sandpiper. All the birds seen previously on the Great Pool were still there and the highlights were Osprey, Yellow Wagtail, Yellow-browed Warbler and 100+ Sanderling.

Back on St Mary's news of Minke Whales got us up to Deep Point. Distant views were had of 1-2 Minke and a couple of Porpoise, but a walk across Porth Hellick Down gave much closer views of a Minke as it turned back north.

At Porth Hellick there was no sign of the Yellow-legged Gull, but a Merlin dropped in to roost and a Kingfisher was zipping around.
