Today I did around six hours looking for migrants. First stop was the fields between Cot Valley and Nanquidno and around Cot Mill. Not much luck there other than a flock of around two hundred Linnet. Then on to Nanquidno and with luck I bumped into Steve Rogers, Nanquidno gave up three Chiff Chaff the first singing Chiff Chaff of spring for me. We got news of a Hoopoe at Lamorna so on to Lamorna and bingo we located several birders observing and there it was distant but stunning, a Hoopoe feeding in the opposite field. No Photo's but hopefully this link will take you to some staggering images of a Hoopoe on the SWOPTICS photo blog Hoopoe gets the bug. please click on the link
