Had arranged a morning out with Brian this morning, the plan was to go for the Waxwings that had been at Mylor Bridge on the Carrick Roads.
But they were not reported yesterday, but a Male Long Tailed Duck had been seen on Carnsew Pool at Hayle so we decided to take a look for that instead.
Arriving at Carnsew we scoured the pool but it was not there, it was then onto the Causeway to scan the estuary, still no sign of it.
We then drove to Carbis Bay to check the sea area in case it had moved onto the sea, saw a very nice small Pod of Dolphins moving across the bay, but still no sign of the Duck.
Next it was down to Lelant Station to check out the lower Estuary but still no sign so back again to Carnsew for a second check guess what no sign.
Right had to get something out of the morning so drove to the Mill Pond in Hayle to have a look at the male Pintail that was reported there.
At last something to look at even if it was an escapee, and got a few pics for the effort, Finally it was onto Copperhouse Creek just in case the L.T.D was there but again nothing seen.
Still we did get three Brent geese, one Greylag Goose, and a Spoonbill on the esutary so we did not do to badly.
The images below are a few rewards of the mornings search.
Moral of the morning is you have to have the bad days to make the good ones!!!
