Our holiday to Scilly is just about the only thing keeping me a work at the minute. I really do need a bloody holiday.
I’ve been looking at the weather sites and to be honest this year isn’t a good one for Hurricanes. Tropical Storm Grace is currently heading our way and I’m hoping she’ll drop something into the Southwest in the next few days. Henri, is brewing out in the Carribean but I doubt it will trouble us.
Having said all that, we can speculate on winds and weather all we like but birds, even Yanks can appear anytime. Andy Mackay’s Yellow-billed Cuckoo on Tresco in 1999 came out of nothing. 1999 will be remembered for being a classic year with birds from all points of the compass.
