WILLY WONKA OR WHAT.
Mmm here is the roundup of last weekend
1 Saturday lunchtime report of White-Rumped Sandpiper 10 mins away at Devoran on a creek of the river Fal. (WOW LIFER)
Spent 3 hrs looking with a number of others no sign, came home it was reported again 1 1/2 hours later.
2 Sunday turned down the chance of a great sea watch, I wanted to get this lifer so arrived at first light and spent 4 1/2hours searching but no sign,so went home at lunchtime.
Mid afternoon it was reported again, so arranged to meet a friend Brian at 17.50 to give it another go. we spent about an hour searching when Brian received a call to say it was on the other side of the estuary. So a quick drive over and after a bit of searching it was located in a channel on the mudflats.(AT LAST IT WAS IN THE BAG), Managed to get a couple of poor record shots not good enough to post.
3 I can say I was delighted with finally getting this bird and on arriving home loaded the computer and entered it onto my life list only for it to tell me I had seen one in October 2000 on Hayle Estuary.
