Just a few more pictures from my trip. A few more dolphin pictures, Purple Sandpiper on the steps of the Bishop Rock Lighthouse and more scenic shots.
Bishop Rock Lighthouse
And a Black Woodpecker !!!
A day of pipits. Went for another look at the Blyth’s Pipit early morning, finally caught up with the Red-throated Pipit early afternoon and finished the day with a Richard’s Pipit. Also had excellent views of 5 Jack Snipe at Lower Moors.
Not a bad day on St Mary’s. Started the day on the Garrison and saw 4 Firecrest and a Yellow-browed Warbler. Went for a wander for the rest of the day and saw Short-toed Lark at the turning circle on the airport and a Snow Bunting nearby and then finished the day with Short-eared Owl and Blyth’s Pipit on Peninnis Head.
Best birds of the day were Blyth’s Pipit, Yellow Browed Warbler and Barred Warbler, which were all seen on St Mary’s.
