And why are you causing trouble on the internet? - should you not be somewhere else yourself ... ??

Off to Spain tomorrow.... Leaving all these rarities to the twitching brigade!

I see the Pelican has finished it's Devon holiday, and headed back to Cornwall.. Good to have it on my 'seen from the house' list.

Mistle Thrush from the bedroom window this morning - that's quite an unusual one for Falmouth.

For those of you that occasionally venture away from Falmouth and into the wilderness south of Helston, you may be interested that Brian Cave's A Lizard Bird Diary is now available from Amazon. While not all will agree with Brian's rather unorthodox style to releasing rarities news, and the book itself contains a few surprises (e.g. a photo of a Roller perched on wires on Lizard Downs), this shouldn't detract from the main focus of the book. It's a wonderful account of all the species, common or rare, that he's seen on the Lizard, and offers great insight into patterns of migration and long-term changes, no doubt indicative of those happening to birds elsewhere. It makes for fascinating reading, and I thoroughly recommend getting a copy.
