Hayle Estuary, Penzance and Mousehole

Much later than initially planned, I caught up with my good friend Liam L mid-afternoon and we headed to the Hayle Estuary, seeing five Goosanders and a scattering of waders including Grey Plovers, Bar-tailed Godwits and Curlews, before heading to Penzance. From Jubilee Pool we had five Purple Sandpipers, two Great Northern Divers, a Rock Pipit and a Great Skua, plus a few Guillemots, Shags, Kittiwakes and Gannets. We finished at Mousehole, where a 2CY Glaucous Gull roosted on St. Clement's Isle.
