what a lark!
Had a couple of skylarks land on the deck earlier and there was also a mini fly past of several pied wagtails.....voyage list up to fourteen species- woohoo!
Had to slap on the factor 30 earlier as my bald bits were starting to roast- it must be hard going for these small migrants flying in the midday heat! No wonder they stop off for a breather!- This wagtail at least managed to grab a couple of flies off the deck before resuming its' passage north!
