Out and about early in order to "deliver" JW to the 0700hrs ferry. The journey afforded an opportunity to scan various places before any disturbance had occurred , but to little benefit. It did provide an increasing appreciation of actually how many rabbits are on this island!!!!! A party of Red-breasted Mergansers heralded the begining of what will be the gradual build up of one or more moulting flocks in various places.
Returned home to start work on what, by now, is quite a pile of admin/correspondence etc given I've been away almost a month........the downside of birdwatching trips!! Thank goodness things are quiet.
