Having a lovely time in Cornwall blah blah weather has been fine blah blah spent most days on the beach blah blah, the usual postcard drivel, so here's some photos.
|My first Wheatears of the year were seen last week at Marazion
|Several males were along the seafront and on the coastal defences
|And just the one female
|I spent a few hours checking Mount's Bay for a 1st winter drake Surf Scoter and eventually caught up with it from the sea wall in Penzance
|This shot shows the diagnostic white patch on the back of the neck and cocked tail
|And here showing the pale belly of a first winter bird
|A Little Tern was also fishing in the shallows in Mount's Bay
|Raven, St Michael's Mount
|Rock Pipit, Mount's Bay
|Choughs are becoming easier to see around the Cornish coast these days
|This one flew over us as we walked the South West Coast Path
|A few Whimbrel were seen on migration
|An old friend hoves into view off Mousehole
|Meadow Pipit enjoying the sunshine
|Sparrowhawk hunting at Porthgwarra
|At my age, I need a little help with birdspotting. Rowan at Porthgwarra.
|Our last day in Cornwall was spent at Tintagel.
