Whilst Joyce & I were having a nice week down on the Lizard , the news came through of a Bufflehead only about five minutes walk from our accommadation, and although we had left for a day out she understood that I would be no fun to live with at all if we did'nt turn back to take a look..This pretty North American duck, probably a first winter female was apparently the first for Cornwall (a second for me ) and appeared to me like a genuine wild bird, being fairly wary,having no visible rings, and its visit coinciding with the recent gales.It fed at the far side of a pool near Housel Bay not far from Lizard Point.

More photos of the Lizard week to follow soon.
