|He didn't move for the entire crossing.|

The crossing to Scilly was less wobbly than expected, despite the 30+ knot wind. There were however plenty of green-faces and sick bags seemed to be popular. Unfortunately the hordes of birds that I was expecting didn't materialise, Bonxie and Storm Petrel were the only notable birds.
Arrival on St Mary's coincided with the rain, so a run round the island wasn't that productive, as 2 Whinchat and a few Wheatear were the only migrants. A Black-necked Grebe at Porthcressa was a Scilly tick and 2 Mediterranean Gull were on the beach.
