Sharpness

Sunday 7th September
A dry day after the torrential rain of the past two days, and the birds at Sharpness we not quite as good as yesterday's Long-tailed Skua. The highlights from the lifeboat station, on the incoming tide (high tide 12:30pm), were a first-winter Kittiwake, flying south at 10:20am, two Common Terns, a Little Egret, 20+ Redshanks, 18 Cormorants, three Curlews, 21 Wigeons and a Yellow Wagtail. A pair of Blackcaps and a Chiffchaff were along the road to the lifeboat station. Kittiwake takes my county year list to 201. We (myself, the other two amigos, Mike, Duncan and Steve) waited for a Manx Shearwater to float back down from Mid Point at WWT, but I gave up at 1:00pm, it would have been a county tick, but I saw loads in Cornwall!
