Pacific Golden Plover

Went to Hayle today to have a  look at the Pacific Golden Plover at Hayle, I caught up with it at Carnsew Basin, thanks to SW Optics for the information. I got great views but the light was Harsh and the bird distant for photography.

 The Pacific Golden-Plover breeds in western Alaska and Siberia and winters on islands across the Pacific Ocean, through southeast Asia, to northeastern Africa. It is uncommon in North America, found breeding in Alaska, and migrating and wintering in small numbers along the Pacific Coast.

Fledgling Wheatear

I found three fledged Northern Wheatear at Botallack today, an unusual breeding, but not unknown for these parts of the county.

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