Still No Blue Tit…..

…..but thirteen new species on the list. Started with the morning dog walk. There were five Sandwich Terns feeding in the bay and a few singing Dunnocks on the land. We had a picnic on the beach, it was actually quite warm out of the wind. Later on in the afternoon I had a walk at the Marazion reserve. A couple of Stonechats were flitting around along with several Chiffchaffs and a single Willow Warbler. I was watching a Heron feeding when suddenly a Bittern flew across the reedbed in front of me. A great view of it as it dropped into the reeds. Five Sand Martins were over the reserve as were a couple of Buzzards. Three Little Egrets were around and singles of Wheatear and Oystercatcher were seen. A couple of Cetti’s were heard but not seen. Before we left  a scan of the bay found a couple of  sleeping Common Scoters drifting along. After tea we drove to Sennen Cove to watch the sunset and to have a drink. Great sunset and a nice pint of St Austell Brewery Proper Job. On Cowloe rocks there were at least seventy-five Sandwich Terns roosting. Some good birds seen but still no Blue Tit.
