Got over to St Mary's after a delay of about an hour, set the tent up and went for a walk along lower moors and across to Porthellick for the lesser legs, got that safely in the bag, just in time as it turns out, it had fecked off by the following morning. I didn't flush it honestly!!!
Being on Scilly just after a hurricane obviously expectations were high so a podgy looking distant bins only actitis Sandpiper got me going for a while until it disgraced itself and called!! Didn't see a great deal else in fact a Ruff and 2 Greenshank were the only bird of note, bumped into another couple who'd seen a Wheatear but also thought things were quiet.
