Hermit Thrush

This morning Andy Bond & myself went down to Cornwall to look for the 1st winter Hermit Thrush that was in the bushes by the car park at Porthgwarra & after a bit of a wait we got good views of this skulking American thrush but I just couldn`t get a nice shot of it !
We then went to Marazion Beach where the weather was now terrible with high winds and drizzle ! to look for a juvenile White-Rumped Sandpiper that was showing very well on the beach quite close to the road , it was in with a few Dunlin & Turnstone & a single Sanderling , & the last bird that we saw today was a juvenile Rose-Coloured Starling that was sat on a wire with numerous Starlings at Long Rock !!

  1. Cracking bird by the look of things form other photos on the net. Pity I am so far away or I would have been tempted by than one. Long time since I saw one in the UK.
