St Agnes - Ortolan finale

Last full day on Scilly and the birds seem to keep on coming..... I was having a wander around the Garrison when news of the Ortolan showing well on St Agnes came out. A midday boat was laid on and it would have been rude not to patronise it.....

The same field behind Troy town farm (which produced the Tawny Pipit) produced the goods again! There was one unusual onlooker, tasting tripod legs :-)



It took an eternity to come close enough for one or two decent images but got there in the end!


Pinkish legs and bill and that distinct yellowish eye ring.




The closest encounter....




After the image-less tick of the previous week, it would have disappointing to have left Scilly without some images - job done!
