Comma at Trenarren

Report. R.Lane. 21st January 2011

On Thurs.20thJan., in addition to another single Red Admiral at Trenarren, I had a single COMMA (which is very rare this early, 9degsC). Hence 1 x COMMA, Trenarren, 20thJan.2011, 1st for year.

Today (21stJan) at Trenarren,, I was treated to a fine display of up to 15 x Ravens in courtship flights (they nest in Jan/Feb); flying upside down and 'side-slipping', also a new one to me, one of a pair would 'dive-bomb' the field below, pulling out of dive at the very last minute !

Later, on 21stJan, I met Andy, Mark and others at Par Pool where several new ducks were seen and confirmed by Mark and Andy. Namely: 8 x Shoveler; 10 x Tufted Ducks; 2 x Scaup (pr); 2 x Gadwall and 1 x Wigeon (MW). The Bittern had been showing well earlier, apparently. In Par Bay there were 20+ G.C.Grebes.

Butterfly list is kicking off early Roger. Well done
