Got out unexpectedly for a while this evening. I wanted to have a look at Par Duck Pond (where I was lucky enough to see and hear a family of Jays), Par pool and beach and then Porthpean over the Bay with the scope as I'd been told there was a Common Scoter lurking in a nearby bay on Saturday, but I failed to find it! I did see a lot of H Gulls, GBB Gulls, Sparrowhawk and the Juv. Song Thrush (well I think it is!) at Porthpean though.
