I'm on holiday with the family so am allowing myself the luxury of posting loads of photos without attempting to compose a coherent narrative. Liberating. I should do it more often.
|I stumbled across this juvenile Glaucous Gull on a late evening visit to St Ives on Friday having left the camera behind. Fortunately it was still there yesterday.
|Initially hidden behind some rocks it was eventually tempted out by someone's thrown away chips
|With a Herring Gull for comparison
|We considered buying some more chips to bring it closer but this proved unnecessary
|Quite a brute!
|Showing some aggression
|Turnstone, St Ives
|I had to get young Rowan to herd these tame Turnstones into the right position
|Earlier in the day a Fulmar cruised the cliffs at Godrevy
|Male Linnet, Gothian Sands
|OK it's not a Crag Martin, bit still nice to see a Sand Martin
|Several were perched on the fence at Gothian Sands
|Rock Pipit, Gothian Sands
|This Dunlin was one of a small party in the surf at Marazion today
|A single Sanderling was also at Marazion
|Not just good birding in Cornwall. A fair bit of this going on too.
