Day trip to Lundy

A quiet trip for Lundy but a Skua sp 30mins out from Bideford almost certainly a Pomarine either Juv or dark phase, I missed two sightings of a Great Grey Shrike on the island, seabirds generally quiet with some Guillemots, Gannets, Shags, Cormorants and usual gulls etc Female/Juv Pied Flycatcher seemed to have dropped, lots of Goldcrest and Wrens through Milcombe, Willow warblers, Wheatear, Meadow Pipits. An incredibly tame Juv Little Stint was working its way through the puddles on the road near the key - you could literally almost touch it - it only actually moved for the landrover to come through! A long awaited Bonxie on the way home. Several Seals and plenty of Dolphins.
