The first couple of hours was spent searching, finding signal and chatting to friends, but at 9am the Hermit Thrush was seen and over the next 1.5 hrs we all enjoyed lovely views of the bird preening and feeding on the ground. A really exciting twitch and my first Catharus Thrush.
After this success, we had great views of a juv. Rose Coloured Starling, juv. White-rumped Sandpiper around Penzance, and a superb Grey Phalarope at Roadford Reservoir in Devon. A brilliant day.
Hermit Thrush at Porthgwarra - the rufous upper-tail contrasting very
nicely with the mantle etc. A well defined white eye-ring and pale
fringes to the coverts......superb!!
