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.

IN THE GARDEN.

These Bullfinches have been visiting the garden regularly but 
 it was a nice surprise to find a large Stick Insect.
