St Germans: Unusually, we saw no Whimbrel in the first half of the year, but this morning there were three – looking very elegant in the morning sunshine. (65) (Andy Blonden)
St Germans: Sadly, no House Matins nested along our road, this year. Tonight, however, a huge number of Swallows and Martins were flying together over the marsh and roosting (precariously) on the rigging of an abandoned boat. So that’s 64. (Andy Blonden)
Crowlas: House Martin, Swift, Black-headed Gull, Mediterranean Gull and Linnet takes my total to 45. (G Healey)
St Germans: A brief evening flyover by a Kestrel brings up 63. (Andy Blonden)
St Germans: Two Stock Dove this morning take me to 62. (Andy Blonden)
Feock: Please could you add Swift to my list bringing my total to 28.
Still no swallows or martins though. They really seem elusive this year. (Rosalind Smith)
Liskeard: At least 15+ Swifts and 5+ House Martins hawking insects over the bungalow this evening. The swifts even gave a short, spine tingling scream. Wonderful.
These birds give me a total of 29 and 30 respectively for my garden listing. (Deena Sharp)
Grampound Road: Two new records to add to my list, 47. Green Woodpecker & 48. Nuthatch (Rob Nicholls)
Tresillian: Two more to add to my list from today. Juvenile stonechat and spotted flycatcher.
St Germans: During June, I’ve only been able to add a Willow Warbler, on 16th, briefly feeding on rose bush aphids (61).
Helston: 2 Swift over this morning. (S Ford)
