Yesterday evening saw us back again at the Beach Pool Par.
The pool seemed taken over by Canada Geese who have been joined by a cousin or two from another Parish.
A Little Egret was resting in a tree at the far reed bed end of the pool a distance far too great for my lens to do justice I left alone.
The beach turned up six Dunlins ...later joined by two others...feeding at the waters edge.
Next we tried the Church area on the road to Menabilly but the usual butterflies in the fields and hedgerows were absent this evening.
Swallows were hawking high up which augurs well for fine weather today.
On the return Angie spotted what we at first though was a Greenfinch up on the wires but turned out to be a Yellowhammer..a patch tick as was the passing Sparrowhawk.


  1. Lovely to hear the account of your evening of spotting - I hopped over here from The Nature of Woodpeckers. Emma
