Whats new?......................

Well I have managed to get out a few times in the past few weeks and even got a few shots of the Black Tern at Gwithian. Tim Twiggs phoned me last week to say he had a Wilson's Phal on the estuary at Hayle, so I packed up the girls and my optics and shot down to Lelant platform where the superb american vagrant was feeding amongst the gulls and waders. I was just on the phone to Ash Hugo to let him know when i saw a wader flying past. I got Mark Halliday onto it as it landed and there it was, a Pectoral Sandpiper.
Went out with Mark, Ash and Monty on Sunday morning and spent a lovely sunny morning at Porthgwarra. Plenty of Wheatears and i relocated the Wryneck in the garden of the coastguards cottages. Lots of other birds about in the county recently, is September the new October?
