This morning we headed to Ponsanooth and although it was a bit quiet (to warm) we did have a good morning with a few interesting birds, so below are a few of the highlights (thanks to Jack Burton for the better pics!).
|Although showing a few green and yellow tones, we're sure this is also a tristis Chiffchaff|
|Green Woodpecker showing off it's sticky tongue|
|The general plumage and length of the first primary indicated this was an adult female,|
but one that had oddly retained just one primary covert, on one wing only
|A cunningly-placed net managed to intercept one of the two Green Sandpipers|
using one of the settling tanks
|We often think of Robins with spots as juveniles, but this bird was ringed in November 2014.|
The give-away is the fact that the spots get larger towards the outside of the wing,
rather than towards the ody as in a juvenile bird.
