First Turtle Dove of the year

Tree Pipit at Telegraph  

  Mid-morning at Porth Hellick there were up to 5 Reed Warbler, 2 Sedge Warbler, 2 House Martin, 15+Sand Martin, 60+Swallow and on the loop trail there was a Grasshopper Warbler reeling. A Yellow Wagtail flew over and on the pool there was the drake Tufted Duck and Snipe. At Carn Friars I briefly saw the Great Spotted Woodpecker.

7 Spotted Ladybird was the first of the year and a Silver-Y at home  

This adult Great-black Backed Gull was getting stuck into a Shag! 

  I kicked my first Turtle Dove of the year at Porthloo and watched it fly off towards Trewince and there was a Tree Pipit at the back of the house.

Every time I passed these two cowboys, Ritchie was always lying down. Here we see Tony passing the biscuits over. 

See what I mean. The other two ain't do much either really.

  2. Thanks Phil, I will definitely look at your blog. I was in Essex and Kent birding during almost all of Jan and saw some good birds. You can see what I saw if you look at the month of Jan on my blog. Bonnie Prince Billy is someone I would like to go and see. Listening to him now.
