There was plenty of wildlife about:
Here's a Turnstone and a Purple Sandpiper, with a pair of Ringed Plover.
Two pairs of Red-breasted Mergansers were spooked into flight by a small boat...
A bit of a photo finish, there.
Soon to be heading north for the breeding season, this smart male Long-tailed Duck was feeding in the shelter of Barrier 3.
Up at the trig point in the centre of the island, a dizzying 32 metres above sea level, we could look back towards Tense Towers, nestled between Hurtiso Farm and the East Mainland Church.
Back on the beach, we were in the pink...
What a grand morning!
