A Week in Cornwall

 Have just returned from a week in Cornwall and have had the opportunity of securing some images of good birds but alas it did not prove easy. First stop Heligan for the Green Heron which, although quite close was SO concealed in the reeds it was well nigh impossible!
Second up was a Red Breasted Flycatcher (above) at Porthgwarra which was fast moving and difficult but showed for a few seconds to get a record shot!
Third was a Barred Warbler at Treen which after an hour or so flew out of deep cover for all of 3 seconds...long enough to identify but not to photograph!
However a few shots of slightly easier targets below.
Kestrel at Pemberth
A Pair of Choughs with a  Jackdaw at the Lizard

Grey Wagtail at Porthcothan

A Dunlin...Porthcothan

 Here at Pagham considerably more Brent Geese are in the Harbour with Teal and Wigeon much in evidence both in the harbour and on the Lagoon. Greenfinch flocks are still feeding on the seeds of Sea Kale and Goldfiches and Linnets are also in good numbers. 7 Little Egrets flew up from in front of the Spit Hide (the door handle having been removed last week) and Grey Plovers were feeding in the Little Lagoon .
