A days Birding

It's been a while since I have done a days birding and it turned out to be very successful. The first venue was Hayle estuar,y to hopefully photograph the long staying Ospre,. no luck with that but I did see it. The other species on my list today was the Black Winged Stilt that has been around for a while. More luck with this a it spent most of the time directly in front of me. A surprise was a Glossy Ibis on te site, it was distant but I managed a record shot. The cream of the day was an Isabelline Shrike at Pendeen " what a beauty" also flying around it was a Whinchat and about 10 metre's away a Wryneck appeared from the undergrowth.
