More twitching

News of a Yellowthroat had me heading off to South Wales. Didnt get there till mid morning but managed to catch up with it only a few minutes after arriving. Unfortunately people had been chasing it all around the fields for the past couple of hours continually flushing it so by the time I had arrived it had been decided that everybody had to stand way back in the field. This was clearly a better arrangement but meant photos were distant.

Straight from here down to Devon to connect with the Red-breasted Goose at Exminster. Still havent got the hang of my pocket Canon settings so things here a bit burnt out

Grey Wag in Dawlish car park

Another one of those extremely ropey record shots. Can you see what it is?

Continued south to Cornwall
Eventually managed to track down the rather elusive adult Glauc at Newlyn Harbour

Kittiwake hanging around

Loafing adult GBBG

Here are the best shots I could manage of the female Bufflehead at Helston Loe Pool which remained stubbornly on the opposite side of the lake. Did try and gain access from the other side but access roads were private and didnt have time for a long walk.
