Had a cracking day out with Kev in Pembs today. Spent a couple of hours looking for the recently reported Red-backed Shrike but to no avail. In a place such as this though it almost didn't matter. Bud was impeccably behaved and thoroughly enjoyed his fuss off two other birders looking for the Shrike.
The main reason we were in the area was at the Gann though. A couple of photographers and birders were on their way back and gave us spot on directions. Cheers ladies and gents
A superb pair of Baird's Sandpipers were knocking around with the Dunlins on the shoreline. A lifer for both of us.
198. Baird's Sandpiper Lifer #12
It's been a good year for Sandpipers this having picked up Common, Green, Purple, Spotted and Bairds.
