Stowaways

Spending the best part of three days on a ferry, the ship becomes a mini patch for the duration. I was a little slow out of my bed this trip so the various stowaways and drop-ins were all picked up by others. In addition to the Willow Warbler and two Wheatear, there were two Turtle Dove  and a juvenile Dunlin.


The Willow Warbler in particular was remarkably confiding, landing in a narrow sluice adjacent to deck 11 in full view of c50 people it proceeded to hop down the sluice past the various feet no more than three inches from it, needs must I guess.
