A trip down to Cornwall this morning to look for a European Roller as I have only seen one of these birds before in Britain and that was way back in 1989 in my home county of Devon .
Paul Bray and myself arrived at the golf course on the Clowance Estate and walked to the spot where the other birders had gathered and after a short wait the bird showed distantly but very well and I was able to get these shots . My first ones taken in Britain .
We then went on too Bosporthennis Common in hope of seeing a Montagu`s Harrier as one had been seen there a few days ago . We looked for over 3 hours but we had no luck , but we did see the following birds , one Common Grasshopper Warbler was seen and another 4 were heard reeling , a Common Cuckoo , a nice Red Kite , 2 Common Swift and a Common Whitethroat .
Our last stop was at a private site where we saw 6 Red-Billed Chough and what a joy it was to be able to hear these birds calling 😀
