Record shot of a Wryneck at Borough Farm
Martin called to tell me he had found a Wryneck at Borough Farm. Late this evening, I had a quick look for it and saw it immediately in a small Hawthorn next to the road. When it came out into the open, I was on the phone to Martin and it was almost impossible for me to get a good shot of the bird. I can't do two things at once!
The first Wryneck of the Autumn was seen by Doug Page at Wingletang, St Agnes, two days ago, 21st August.
2 Greenshank and a Common Sandpiper were at Porth Hellick
First Water Rail of the year was also at Porth Hellick
Lots of Eels in the shallows
