All over the place

A busy schedule, a disorganised hard-drive and a terrible memory have caused me to neglect to post details of our travels over the Easter break. So to make amends, here is the first of two posts with some photographic highlights of an unseasonably warm week in Cornwall and Devon:
Chough near the Lizard
Chough, the bird which appears on the Cornish coat of arms, returned to breed on the Lizard several years ago after a long absence. The Cornish population continues to increase steadily
Fulmar also breed on the cliffs at the Lizard
A Common Sandpiper was on an ornamental lakes at our cottage on the Bonython Estate
An early morning visit to Church Cove on the Lizard produced a few migrants, including this Willow Warbler
A vigorous songster
A common enough bird, the Rook, but still deserving of the occasional appearance on this blog
Hard to believe that when I started this blog, the one on the right was much shorter than the one in the middle, and the one on the left was still in a pushchair!
Green-winged Orchid near Mullion Cove
