A trip to Bryher – landscapes and birds

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

Rock sculture

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 stonechat

A smart male

Wrens are perhaps the commonest bird on the Islands

Bryher is well worth a visit – you won’t be disappointed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One thought on “A trip to Bryher – landscapes and birds

  1. This island is lovely and I’m fascinated by the interesting place names. Would you allow me to make up blog-post using the photos and captions of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th photos and I would of course clearly credit to your name, and provide links to your blog-post and also your blog home. Please let me know if that is ok with you. Thanks, Liz
