A week in the South West- Birds edition

Thursday 21st September 2017

Summary of an eventful couple of weeks celebrating Jan's 70th. It started with a family break at Exmouth/Topsham moved on to a week in the Scilly Isles, courtesy of Jan's sister Gill, and finished with a short stay with old friends in rural Somerset. The pace was leisurely and mainly relaxed. Birdwatching was minimal with little migration noted although it would have been rude not to have had a look at the Semi-palmated Sandpiper on St Mary's or noticed the previously un-noted Yellow browed warbler on Bryher.

Apologies for the lack of 'family' images but I used my phone camera which I'm taking time to download.
