Polgigga, 7th July 2017
Setting off just before midnight, I picked up Magnus A and Ed S then pointed the car in the direction of Land's End. We arrived at around 6am as positive news came through and joined the assembling crowd along a public footpath through a pasture, scopes fixed on the first-summer female AMUR FALCON. It didn't do a whole lot while we were there, other than look a little forlorn at that hour and coughing up three pellets. Other birds around included a Raven and a tireless singing Sedge Warbler. After soaking it in for an hour or so, we headed back to get back home in good time. It was a good plan as the return was a nightmare and I only arrived home at 17:50. Thanks very much to Ed and Mag for keeping me going on the numbing drive, as well as two Corn Buntings heard singing as we crawled east through Salisbury Plan!
