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...
