Porthellick Pool - Waders!

No pelagic today sadly but my last day on Scilly was spent wandering around the island hoping for something exciting? Lovely views and big clouds about - I missed all the rain!

Porthellick beach....


Another view.


No exciting birds turned up sadly - just a group of 9 Greenshank and 1juv Common Sandpiper at Porthellick Pool.....The Greenshanks spent most of the time asleep apart from this individual!



In the mood for the camera!




And plenty of food forthcoming, mostly worms....




The Common Sandpiper came right under the hide!




Another worm about to disappear!


Ruffled up after a preen in reflection....


And a reflective moment for the Greenshank.


There were quite a few butterflies about on the cliff walk......
