So have just come back from a couple of days soggy birding (The weather has been absolutely abysmal). Had a call late on Tuesday evening from my pal Mark to say he had a couple of days off and he was going to look for the Rare Paddyfield Warbler on the Lizard Peninsula on Wednesday.
We arrived at Church Cove around 08.30 it was foggy with quite a heavy drizzle coming down, a couple of other birders said they had a brief view around daybreak but not seen since.
So after an hour or so it finally turned up back in the part of an old quarry it seem to like, over the next hour it showed well on and of and managed to get a few record shots though the light was very poor. still it was really nice to see this super little bird for the first time.
