Day 5: Holy Island

Lazy morning. Afternoon on Holy Island – walked the dunes and shoreline of the north coast. Saw swallow fledglings – sweet! Linnets, pipits, grey and pied wagtails. Eiders on sea, gannets flying across. Stonechats, skylarks, reed bunting.

Gorgeous poppies in fields – took pictures on my SLR (not digital I’m afraid!) High brown frittilary butterflies. Moths – lots of burnets (not sure of type) emerging from pupae on grasses and drying off their wings.
