    Prussia Cove, Porth-en-alls, Cornwall

    Hi guys, Just a quick question. I'm at a wedding in Prussia Cove this weekend. I'm not sure exactly how much birding I will be able to squeeze in, but if I can tear myself away from the warm beer and endless poetry, I was just wondering if there was presently anything of interest to be looking...

    Great Grey Shrike still present this evening. Spent some time atop of the tall tree between VC and dipping pond, before dropping into the bushes below. Last seen about 1810. Hopefully it will stick around for tomorrow! 1 Barn Owl, 1 Kestrel, 1 Stonechat and 2 Goldcrest also about.

    Cut End

    Hi Dave, Cut End is the north side (Freiston side) of the Witham Mouth. It is accessible from Freiston Shore, but it is quite a hike along the seabank from the main car park. There is a much smaller car park at the bottom of Cut End Road (drive into Fishtoft, turn down Gaysfield Road and cross...

    One Pectoral Sandpiper was still present (from East Hide) this evening, along with the Glossy Ibis, eleven Curlew Sandpiper and at least four Little Stint. It's depressing how quickly the nights are pulling in now! Good numbers of Black-tailed Godwit and Ruff were already starting to drop onto...

    Agree completely, Fred. I hate the things. Flying low over peoples gardens and plonking down wherever they like. One particular imbecile actually landed in the conservation area on the wet grassland a few months back.

    Our already wonderful Frampton Autumn got even better today, with an elusive but super rewarding Barred Warbler on the path to Tab's Head. Cracking find by Boy Wonder. A reserve first, I believe! :clap:

    Tuscany/ Umbria

    Hi, I've posted this on the Info Wanted thread, but I thought I'd put it here too. I'm heading to Cortona (Tuscany/ Umbria border) for the last week of August. I'm not too far off Lago Trasimeno and Lago di Montepulciano, both of which I have managed to find a little info about. However, I'd...

    Cortona, Italy - End of August

    Hi, I'm heading to Cortona (Tuscany/ Umbria border) for my sisters wedding in the last week of August. However, I obviously intend to try to squeeze some birding in whilst I'm there too. I'm not too far off Lago Trasimeno and Lago di Montepulciano, both of which I have managed to find a little...

    Hi Fred. John Badley hit 25 on Monday morning... http://www.lincsbirdclub.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21102 Like you say, it's hard not to hit 20+ wader species at Frampton at the minute. Black-tailed Godwit and Dunlin numbers are going through the roof, particularly at high tide. Love...
