A little 'wet' Cornish birding

Hello

Birding in some violent storms with hail and thunder and lightening was interesting this morning as we paid The Hayle Estuary a visit!

A fishing Osprey braved the conditions at high tide, dealing with the heavy rain far better than us!  When the heavy weather passed, scanning the estuarine birds revealed a Garganey, three Pintail, a couple of Brent Geese, up to ten Mediterranean Gulls and a variety of common waders.

A visit to Long Rock sands produced more common coastal birds plus a couple of views of a juvenile Rose-coloured Starling visiting gardens with Starlings.

Then time for the long journey back home to 'sunny' Northants...

Regards

Eleanor and Neil
