Scilly's over

The final morning on Scilly was spent wandering around St Mary's. On the Garrison were 3+ Yellow-browed Warbler, Firecrest and 2 fly-over Crossbill. Two Mediterranean Gull were on Porthcressa Beach. Two Reed Bunting were at Lower Moors and the Blyth's Pipit was still on Peninnis.

The Scillonian III crossing was relatively bird free with an Arctic Skua, 3 Kittiwake and a handful of auks. Two Harbour Porpoise were seen just off Scilly and loads of Common Dolphin were buzzing the boat halfway home.
