First rarity arrives

Our first real rarity of the year was found yesterday by Sam Williams. A superb Red-rumped Swallow was with Barn Swallows over the main pool at 3.30pm. It didnt hang around, much to the dissappontment of the birders who made the effort to see it. Sam managed a record hot of the bird and luckily it was relocated a short time later at Marazion. It was also a new species for the reserve. Well Done Sam!
