Day 5 Wednesday 1st June 2016
We can’t believe it – another scorching sunny hot day.
Today we took a bus ride to Manorbier and walked back along the coastal path.
It was tough walking again with plenty of ups and downs and the heat added another dimension!
This coastline is fantastic with breathtaking scenery.
Today the birds came along as well.
I am sure that there would be lots more bird species to see if we were not walking for 6hrs plus each day.
But even concentrating on the walking and carrying a camera and bins I am happy with the birds we are seeing and photographing.
Today we had some good sightings of Gannets and Chough.
A Whitethroat made an appearance and Stonechat were seen frequently.
No Whinchat, as far as I could tell.
A Buzzard made an appearance, while we were waiting for the bus, and a House Sparrow was having a nasty tangle with some plastic stringy stuff for it’s nest.
