Isles of Scilly

No Spanish birding this week as Ive returned to the Isles of Scilly for a Birthday Party, and a catch up with my birding friends and mates there. Arriving at the end of the 30th Annual World championships Gig weekend,  St Mary's was full of Gig rowing crew, members, and supporters, its a great event and a crazy time for the Islands with a 170 gigs  competing in the Championships title. if you've  never been there its one for your life list to do its amazing/
