Went for the Hermit Thrush on Friday and what a frustrating day it turned out to be. I arrived at Porthgwarra just before nine to be told the Thrush had been showing well at eight fifteen, so at least I knew it was still around, so decided to give it a couple of hours. Around eleven o'clock someone glimpsed it in the garden across the road, but it dissapeared before I got there, but apparantly each day of its stay it had been seen in the same place between one and two o'clock , so I might as well stay to try and at least see it if not get a photo, but still no joy, now it was starting to rain and the light fading, so I may as well stay now that I 've been here this long. But it was'nt to be and I;d spent all day staring at the same clump of trees.Monday saw the weather brighten up so took the chance to photograph the Grey Phalarope again, which was still showing really nicely (down to few feet) just up the road at Roadford.Super little bird.
