SUNDAY 04/09/2016


Finally managed to get out with the camera again yesterday, after a real photography famine.
Started off at Marazion where the Buff- Breasted Sandpiper was showing well,also three Knot on the beach, other species Sanderling, Dunlin & Ring Plover did not catch up with the Curlew Sander Pipers or Little Stints.
Then on down to Pendeen for a bit of sea watching, plenty of Manx Shearwaters and a few Sooty Shearwaters also four Choughs dropped in on the cliffs right below us giving great views.
We then went on to Nanquidno, the best we could get here were two Blackcaps M/F and a Kestrel with a male Blackbird it had just predated.
