I spent Friday and Saturday seawatching from Porthgwarra and basically seeing all the same birds as two weeks ago off the Scillies, but this time:
- in weather ranging from murky, to drizzly, to simply wet
- the birds were typically way outside photographic range
- nothing was even a year tick, let alone a lifer.
That’s all OK though – it was good fun, and there was certainly enough passage to offer the possibility of something good.
However, it does leave me a bit short of pictures for this post. Fortunately, though, I think I
threatened promised to show you some more flight shots from the Scillies a couple of weeks ago. Here they are – just imagine seeing these through rain-coated optics at considerable range, and you get a slice of the Porthgwarra experience.
