A holiday in Mallorca for last week was cancelled due to the Icelandic Volcanic ash cloud and a hurriedly arranged alternative for a few days in Cornwall resulted in 5 days of cloudless, sunny weather. Best bird was a Whiskered Tern lingering in the Camel estuary but at some distance for a decent photo. However I have posted a few images of the commoner birds on my Flickr site http://www.flickr.com/photos/pagman/
Arriving back today a quick walk around Pagham spit produced 2 Wheatear, 2 Little Tern, a Whimbrel and a pair of Ringed Plover looking suspiciously as if they were contemplating breeding!
A Carrion Crow was sitting on a nest in the lone apple tree and a Wood Pigeon was sitting on eggs in a small bush in our small beach garden!
