We did meet a very nice resident and her flock of garden birds and had a nice cup of tea and slice of cake at the boat house. A black guillemot was within a few metres of the ferry on the way back, I don't know who was more surprised, us or the guillemot.
Back on the main island we finally got a good view of a whimbrel, another first for us.
