Last day on Scilly for a while …..

I’m now back from the Isles of Scilly – always my favourite place. Had a great week. Here are a couple of birds I photographed on Little Porth beach before catching the Scillonian home.

Rock pipit 1
A rock pipit – darker than a meadow pipit

Rock pipit 2
Where it is standing also helps!

Black redstart 3
And my favourite little bird of the week – the black redstart

The crossing back on the Scillonian was pretty good too – we saw an arctic  skua harassing a kittiwake along with 2 habour porpoises and around 50 common dolphins.
