The first port of call this evening was Spit Beach. Although the tide was in we saw Cormorants, Gulls,Rock Pipits and three Turnstones at the waters edge which after checking turned out a patch tick.
The next stop was the Beach Pool at Par...the first thing that I noticed was that there was not a single Herring Gull on the pool, posts or waters edge a most unusual occurrence. In fact the pool was very quiet with a lone Coot, thirty Black-headed Gulls and the usual Geese and Swans but in smaller numbers.
All the little brown jobs decided to keep themselves hidden and it was a very strange Gorse Walk with no birds singing or in sight.

Early in the afternoon Angie and myself photographed a number of Butterflies in a field close to Menabilly.
