Argal Reservoir (5th October)
With news in that 7 Red-rumped Swallows had been seen at Marazion, the best I could do, given the limited number of daylight hours I had left was to make a quick visit to one of the local res's. My choice was Argal Reservoir as it was the furthest south and the relatively large expanse of water was bound to turn up a few hirundines. I was rather surprised, to say the least, that not one hirundine was in sight throughout my visit, not to mention no Red-rumps. I'll make a trip to Marazion tomorrow to see whether it is possible to dip 7 birds in one day.
