Wryneck-A Superb Bird
Wryneck hunting for ants

A couple of hours this afternoon at Davidstow,I could,nt find anything of note on the airfield,so took the usual drive down towards Crowdy where a nice male Sparrowhawk was sitting on a fencepost but flew off before I even got the camera out, so I turned around and noticed a small bird sunning itself on another fencepost & quickly realised it was a Wryneck, I took a few distance shots before stopping opposite it-what a little beauty-and then it flew down onto the grass verge right in front of me and started to feed on ants and perform superbly.Brilliant.I was joined by friendly chap Ray from Kilkhampton who was delighted to see this first for him and we photographed it to our hearts content.A few more photos will be in the diary section of my main website soon.
