A few from the Med. Top: Audouin's Gull. Middle: Black-winged Stilt. Bottom: Scopoli's Shearwater showing the diagnostic underwing pattern. Surely one that turns up in the SW more than people realise.

May birds


Two from today. Top: ropey shot of an adult Night Heron on Loe Pool. Middle: slightly less dodgy shot of the Sardinian Warbler at Land's End. Bottom: Grotty Squacco Heron in the mist. Apoling photo conditions. Very bottom: play the video to hear the night heron croaking. Recorded a couple of days later using my phone and cleaned up a bit, looped and turned into a video with a bit of digital editing.
