A few pics taken from the past few days

 Spoonbill made a return to New Grimsby on Tuesday the same one that I saw before Christmas outside my house. Good to see he is doing ok!
 This Song Thrush was seeing off a Redwing on the Garrison field on Wednesday lunchtime.
 Sunset from my house this evening at 4.30 p.m after a day of good sunny spells and the odd shower..
South Hill, Bryher and Samson across the channel..nice to see the gorse in flower already in the hedgerows.

Dolphin at New Grimsby this morning!

 Looked out of my window this morning and was amazed to see this dolphin in the harbour!
At first thoughts I thought it was a dolphin in trouble but I think it was actually doing a quick spot of fishing as the tide was coming in.
The dolphin came into shallow water about 5 or 6 feet deep at the most.
It hung around for about half an hour and  went back out into the deeper waters of Tresco Channel when the Firethorn came to the quay to pick up passengers, to my relief!
