Clear and bright start this morning so headed down to Hayle, first stop was the hide on Ryans Field but with the exception of 6 Wigeon and 3 Curlew it was dead. Maybe the very cold Westerly that was blowing kept everything under cover. Next stop was Marazion and guess what ? it was the same story all over again, so after an hour watching the Reed beds and seeing nothing of interest I got back to the car and drove back towards home to warm up. Now I dont like to waste a mornings birding so decided to stop at Tehidy Woods. As I started to walk through the woods the birds were singing and a lot of activity going on. Stopping in a Sunny sheltered spot by one of the pools I had a lot of common species, Robins, Finches, Tits, and a very nice though distant Chiffchaff and Jay. Next I noticed some movement on the ground to my left and turning slightly there was one of our smallest British birds a Wren foraging in the grass, so not having any photos of one this year it will be my post for tonight. Not the greatest pics but I still think its a lovely little bird.
