Little Egret at Pelistry
Mid-morning, I dropped off some guests from the hotel at Porth Hellick and joined Ritchie near the pool. Here the pair of Pintail and 6 White-fronted Geese were knocking around. On the loop trail we could only find one of the Firecrest and a male Sparrowhawk and single Fieldfare flew over. A Woodcock was flushed nearby and 2 Water Rail were heard. Jim trapped a Grey Wagtail and there were only 5 Chiffchaff enjoying the sun, but in the Pelistry area there were up to 10 Chiffchaff. The highlight here was it or another Mistle Thrush in one of the cow fields feeding with 8 Redwing, 20+Blackbird and 60+Wood Pigeon.
Mistle Thrush stuck around all day at Pelistry where everybody managed to catch up with it
The geese stretched their wings breifly before touching back down onto the pool again. First time I've seen the pair of Pintail since arriving over a week ago
The Firecrest proved very mobile on the loop trail with this Great Tit in the same area. Last week, 2 Coal Tits were observed displaying on St Agnes
There were up to 3 Goldcrest, 4 Chiffchaff, male Wheatear and an unringed Grey Wagtail on the Garrison
Could this be the male Pintail from Porth Hellick that was behind the quay yesterday
