Exclusive Trip for 2 – August 2022 

An eleventh hour scheduling a couple of days ago implied we obtained a complete early morning with Sennen and also Mike in Cornwall. We went to a very early sea-watch at Pendeen as Sennen was eager to see Shearwaters. We really did not trouble with Porthgwarra as there were currently a huge group there and also as an amateur birder, this can be daunting and also rather frustrating! Not so at Pendeen where we were the only site visitors! There was a continuous circulation of Manx Shearwaters, along with Fulmars, Gannets and also Shags, sufficient to maintain us delighted for a hr. Rainfall ruined play, so we went to Kenidjack Valley.

The rainfall boiled down a little bit hefty at Kenidjack however we had bird’s-eye views of an adolescent Pied Flycatcher whilst we protected under the trees by the donkey paddock. When the rainfall quit and also the sunlight once more appeared, the valley actually revived with Blackcaps, Willow Warblers, Whitethroats, Blue and also Great Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Stonechats and also 10 Residence Martins expenses. A Tree Pipit flew north calling expenses and also the Pied Flycatcher revealed once again quickly. We discovered 3 Identified Flycatchers opposite the parts prior to we left.

Our last location was Drift tank searching for waders. In spite of one more number of birders purging birds by straying off the primary course, we still had bird’s-eye views of 4 Timber Sandpipers, a minimum of 4 Environment-friendly Sandpipers, 10+ Typical Sandpipers, 4 Black-tailed Godwits, 3 Greenshank, a Redshank and also Typical Snipe! It was wonderful to reveal our customers the distinction in between the sandpipers, their phone calls and also in trip.
