KING FOR A DAY.


I got this 1st winter Drake King Eider at Maenporth yesterday, where he had for 
a time, teamed up with a female Common Eider. This is a lifer for me.
These shots have been heavily cropped as it was so far out.

BLACK REDSTART AT FALMOUTH.

I had a great couple of hours at Falmouth today. 
Have tried for this beauty more than once. 
















 Saw a couple of Grey Wagtails. The second one appears to be 
 missing a tail so not sure it will do much wagging.

SNOW BUNTINGS at GOTHIAN SANDS

 I Finally got down to Gothian Sands for the Snow Buntings. 
Only had a short break in the weather to get them and they were quite flighty. 
Finally met Mike (Kernow Birder) and Harvey the dog for the first time
 and it was great to have their company.
 We have been following each others blogs and realised that we actually went to school together.

I finally went down to Porthgwarra for the Desert Wheatear and then 
spent a couple of hours birding around Penzance and Longrock.
Not a lot about but still a nice way to spend the afternoon.
