Ryan's Field and Land's End.

Nice to see some birds for a change, although we didn't get the Wryneck we hoped for.
These Sandwich Terns were taken at Ryan's Field, as was the Common Sandpiper.
The Ruff and Wheatear were taken at St. Gothian Sands.








This Common Darter took a fancy to John.

  1. Great captures! Especially of John's new friend! I had a Variable Darner try to land on my face the other day (twice!) and because of it's size, I couldn't help but pull away as it approached to closely! He did good to stand still and let darter land. I've never seen a curlew, but we have whimbrels pass through during the fall migration, a close relative. ~karen

  8. Nice masala of pictures, John and Sue.
    Sandwich Tern is a rare visitor here, and I'd love to see one. I take that butterfly is Comma.

  10. Hi everyone
    The above thanks are from myself and Sue but as our grand-son has been on the computer and left himself signed in, it has come up with his name.
