Whilst trying to catch up with the Bairds Sandpiper (unsuccessfully) at Marazion I captured a few images of the common waders on the beach.

On Safari in St Just

First blog for a long time, here is a few from my recent trips out locally. Looking for a Black Kite today seen in Kenidjack, as usual no luck. White throat, Cuckoo, Sanderling and Common Buzzard below.

Snowy Owl

My third Snowy Owl on the patch in the last 10 years. This female Snowy was so close initially, however as she was roadside the passing odd car unsettled it and pushed around 20 metres away.

White Rumped Sandpiper

I caught up with this Juvenile White Rumped Sandpiper today at St Gothian Sands, Gwithian. Blown off course by one of the hurricanes or Atlantic storms we have experienced of late. Poor thing should be in South America.
