Today I went out to Sennen Cove for the Longtail Duck then on to Marazion looking for Reed Buntings. We found the LT Duck in its usual place off shore opposite the beach restaurant but too far for a reasonable image I also had a cracking adult Med Gull with hood, kittiwake and Razorbill. Marazion gave up five Reed Buntings along with the usual such as a Cetti' Warbler, Long Tail tits, Snipe, Teal, Mallard, Yellowhammer, Three Grey Heron Nest sites etc but no Bittern although they were seen by Bob (The Bittern) Sharples.
