We stayed in the Youth Hostel at Whitesands - the view from which you can see above. That's Ramsey Island in the distance. Birding was quiet. Seawatching only came up with Gannet, Shag, Fulmar, Kittiwake, Common Scoter and hundreds of Manxies. Also some distant views of Harbour Porpoise. The Grey Seals had also started pupping. On land the 'highlights' were Chough, Peregrine (patiently chasing a Ringed Plover until it nonchanantly picked it off when it got knackered) and Red-legged Partridge.
Roll on Autumn.
