Ramsey Island

Time to brave the mighty Atlantic and take the 5 minute ferry over to Ramsey Island. Bright blue skies again, very hot under the sun. We had booked a tour around the island on a boat after the island, but they decided they had better things to do, so it was postponed to the next day.

Lots more walking than I had expected, and a lot less birds, hardly anything visible from the Island itself. More Choughs but still no luck getting good shots. Some cliff-nesting birds visible from the paths. Nice views from the south of the island, looking out to Ynys Bery and lots of wildflowers everywhere (should have left the big lenses behind and stuck to flowers).

I've got this lump of lead with me, might as well use it to photograph flowers

And relax
