Brown Booby

A trip down to Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall today to look for a 1st for Britain a Brown Booby that had most likely come across from Caribbean waters , we arrived to see quite a bit of a crowd already there and we were soon put onto the bird that was sat on a rock well out to sea , but as luck would have it we were only watching the bird for a short while when it took to flight and came into the bay where we were standing giving great views and allowing me to get these distant shots of it .
After watching the bird for a while we went a short distance up the road to Caerthillian Cove to look for a reported Red-Backed Shrike but we searched for it for a while where it had been seen earlier with no luck , so I decided to look at a different area and as I was walking along a path of short grass I put up a Eurasian Wryneck it then flew to a bush and showed for a short while before dropping into deep cover .
Our last stop was at Davidstow Airport to look for a Buff-Breasted Sandpiper and at first we searched and searched with no luck at all and we were just about to head for home , but we decided to give it one last look and our luck was in as a small flock of Common Ringed Plover were found and there was the Buff-Breasted Sandpiper in with them .
