Next was Marazion. Here, though, the high wind was too much - we went on a short and pointless walk across RSPB Marazion Marsh, seeing a handful of Mallards, then across the road to the dunes and sea. No birds were in evidence and, not enjoying having our faces and camera gear sandblasted, we quickly turned back and continued, now heading north to the Hayle estuary. The hide overlooking Ryan's Field revealed a few Redshanks, Barwits, gulls, Chiffchaffs in the scrub and a lone Oystercatcher, but a walk to the road bridge across the estuary proper was more productive.
After a tea'n'cake interval, we drove back south, and again checked the Black Redstart spot, again without success. We also revisited the harbour at Newlyn for a little while.
