Adventures in an empty corner

Birding musings and ramblings around South-east Cornwall - the empty corner of the county.

Exception that proves the rule...

Up to Davidstow this morning to have a look for the Buff-breasted Sandpiper as well as a White-rumped Sand and a Temminck's Stint which have been present on the airfield.
 Davidstow is not part of the empty corner so what better way to start this blog than by proving the point and travelling elsewhere to see some birds?

Unfortunately the rain decided to play its part and hamper viewing and photography conditions making it almost impossible to wind the car window down to view the birds. Having said that, the Buff-breast was fairly easy to find wandering about on the short grass and puddles along with a few Ringed Plover and Dunlin. The other two didn't want to play, and who could blame them?
