Bittern and Debut Species on the Blog

A visit to Marazion as usual and the a trip to Penzance Tolcarne beach for Pale Bellied Brent Goose and Grey Phalarope. I didn't get either of them as I took a detour in Penzance just in case the Waxwings were still there and they were. Light was of course pants, but the sun did shine for some nice pictures for about two minutes. Straight onto the pictures then and I may post some more later this week.

Waxwing, note the tongue reaching out for the fruit!
