I made a concerted to go to Porthgwarra this afternoon to see the Yellow Billed Cuckoo, I have missed a few rarities this Autumn migration but could not resist this species as it is a lifer for me. It should be in South America, unfortunately for this poor bird it was in all probability blown off course by hurricane Gonzales, my Photography is below average butI only took a 70 to 200 zoom len's with a two times converter and no Tri-pod. The most important thing for me was to see the bird.
male Hen Harrier - one from a few weeks back that I had overlooked as they were pretty poor -- a brief fly by at Manby Flashes - the only male I have seen this winter
