Unidentified Seaside Bird

Observed: 15th November 2012 By: Madelaine Kirke

Description:

This bird came to scrounge bread when we were feeding Swans off the harbour wall at Mevagissey. It came within 18" of my husband's foot - an astonishing lack of fear. What is it?

I remember a poor turnstone

I remember a poor turnstone who had lost half of its leg being fed pasty crumbs in Meva. Quite a surreal site! :)
