A bird race around Agnes

There aren’t many birds around on St Agnes at the moment …. so as a result we all decided to have an informal ‘bird race’ – this involves trying to see as many different species in a day.

We managed 57 species which wasn’t too bad – the winner got 61 (8 teams in total). Apparently the record for a day in October for Agnes is 72.

Here are a few photos from around the island.
