A Pair of Dippers.

After a latish start we arrived at Kynance Cove. John Rowe gave me instructions to the likely whereabouts of the Dartfords.....John was on the button (so was Jenson). Unfortunately I could not be 100% certain the bird I saw was a Dartford Warbler.... so a dip. The Stonechats and Skylarks were abundant though.
I did take the scope with me and the results were horrendous. I now know I cannot see the screen clearly in bright sunshine and obviously not being able to look through a viewfinder I shall use it in Hides and the garden where the results have been more than satisfactory. We had to miss The Lizard and Helston as Angie had told Duncan we would be at Hayle at midday.
No Cattle Egrets and no Sandwich Terns.
We spent the remainder of the day at Stithians taking photographs and we are both pleased with our results.
So the end result was the usual 120 miles round trip and no birds for the list.

  3. Your info was spot on John. I am sure it was a Dartford Warbler.
