Went to Bryher yesterday – it is such a beautiful and rugged island – here are a few pictures.
This is Shipman Head at the north end of the island
And this is Hell Bay – it takes the full unimpeded force of a westerly gale
Thift flowering beside Popplestone Bay
A maze beside Popplestone Bay
Steve enjoying the view and snapping a few shots
There was a flock of four Dunlin on the Pool
They were very tame which implies they hadn’t seen people before
Birds from the wilderness
Smart bird in summer plumage
A whimbrel amongst the thrift
On its way to breed in the far north on the tundra
A smart male
Wrens are perhaps the commonest bird on the Islands
Bryher is well worth a visit – you won’t be disappointed.
