Our last full day on Scilly and the sun has deserted us. Grey, chilly and windy, it was a little bumpy on the crossing to St Martin's. A short stake-out at some fields by Middle Town gave initially fleeting views of my bogey bird, Ortolan Bunting. After a few minutes it returned to show superbly down to 30 feet in short grass.

Very little else was seen on the island, but an Osprey drifted over twice and Peregrines made frequent passes.
