Then it was straight down to Lands End for the Gull Billed Tern that has been around for a few days.
So having parked we walked up the lane to Trevilley Farm and onto the field were it likes to frequent. After a wait of about 15mins it turned up and proceeded to fly around the field feeding,and it gave the opportunity for a few photo's. We spent about 30 mins until it flew off to the West to other ploughed Fields it likes to visit, We then left and drove to Lands End and decided to walk along the cycle track towards Sennen.
Further along the track we meet a another birding friend Lynton from Newlyn,he told us that he had a Tree Pipit along the track but it had flown off and did not see it again.
So Ash and I walked further along the track and the best we could come up with was a Willow Warbler.
It was at this point my Mobile Phone rang and it was Lynton to say that a Woodchat Shrike had been found on Treve Common, which was only two fields away.
So it was over the fence (And yes I did stay on my feet) across the fields and onto the Common where we could see Martin Elliot the Birder who found it.
We walked over to him and arrived the same time as Lynton who came from the opposite direction, Martin pointed out the Shrike and we got onto it straight away it was then that Lynton said I can see a Subalpine Warbler in the same hedgerow about 2 metres from the Shrike, looking closer it most certainly was, and this was a lifer for Ash and myself so it was turning out to be a great morning. Also here we had three Whitethroats which were year ticks.
So below is a list of this mornings year ticks and the birds I managed to Photograph.
