Points south

After a flying visit to the Isles of Scilly last weekend, I met up with the rest of the family to spend a few days in a cottage on Cornwall's Lizard peninsula. Wheatears and Willow Warblers were the most numerous migrant birds, though there were a few Whitethroat, Whimbrel and a single Woodchat Shrike to catch up with too. A few pictures below, and more on some birds which don't begin with 'W' in a later post.

Couldn't decide whether I preferred the brown background...
...or the green background...
...or the brown and green background
Decisions, decisions.
Looks like green wins the day
