Had a few days in Cornwall. Fantastic weather, not a cloud in the sky for four days. No good for birds though as virtually all the migrants seem to have flown. I added two for the year.

216. Spotted Sandpiper
217. Yellow-browed Warbler.

That makes 320 if you include Turkeys new year birds.

I saw a red crested Pochard at Carsington Water three weeks agon and forgot to add it to the list. Also went down to a friends in South wales and called into Porthcawl in the hope of seeing some of these storm blown Leache's Petrels. I managed to see 5+ straight away.

218 Red-crested Pochard
219. Leache's Petrel
