The Brent Goose was watched fly in high over Old Town Cove to south before flying back 5 minutes later and land on the Town Bar, Padstow. (Unfortunately the bird was only ever seen at distance and the race could not be determined).

The ten Goosander at Old Town Cove were made up of four males and six “brownheads”, these probably included the three males orginally seen off Padstow. (It is not know if the Old Town Cove birds and the 12 off Tregunna were different birds).
