Observation details

First watched at c10.05 as it flew offshore along Porthkidney beach and back to the estuary. Rushed there but couldn’t see it then tried Carbis Bay. Picked it up again here at c10.55 as it flew west through the bay towards St Ives, came reasonably close at times. Then watched fishing off west end of Carbis Bay until 11.15 when we left. Cracking bird!!
