Northern Wheatears return

Northern Wheatears have arrived in numbers in Cornwall with the first bird being a male at Sennen on 3rd March.  Two more were recorded at Land's End and others at St Gothians and the Lizard the following day.  I was hoping for my own first sighting on the 4th at Davidstow but sadly none had made it this far.  I saw four males yesterday at St Gothians NR.  I guess they had just arrived overnight as they were feeding well and keen to move through. 


  1. Nice shot Steve, It's good to see the Wheatears coming back through.

  2. Lovely shot Steve of a very pretty bird.
