It is my last day on the Isles of Scilly today. Here are a selection of photos from yesterday which I think sum up what I have been doing for the last 10 days – birds, views and gigs!
There are just two gigs on the beach now – both local boats – left where they were landed after the men’s final – I guess now that the seas are back to something sensible they will be rowed home soon. This is the Dolphin, it is a St Martin’s boat and was built in 1967
Finally ….. I have never seen this before but apparently it has been here for years …. a comedy wooden black woodpecker on a telegraph pole near Porth Mellon … never recorded in the UK but we all live in hope which is why so many of us will return to Scilly again.
