19th October

Up at 06.00 to paint the view I saw on the Garrison last night.

Later did a day trip to Bryher to try for the Blackpoll Warbler - completely failed to see it, despite a lot of time spent searching.  This bird has been notoriously elusive and I heard that others had made three visits before they saw it.  I wasn't prepared to do this - it was today or nothing.  It did not show for the entire day, and was not seen there on subeqent days either.  [In early November one was found on St Marys - I wonder if it could be the same bird just relocating?].
But still, Bryher is always nice to visit and always feels rare, even when the sun's shining!
