CUCKOO AT BUTTERMILK HILL.


 There were 2 Cuckoos at Buttermilk Hill yesterday.
In my haste to locate one after I heard it call, I nearly 
broke my neck by stepping in a Rabbit hole and falling over. 
Today my knee looks like a cricket ball.
Well worth it though as they seem to get fewer every year.

CATCHING UP.

Here are a few shots from the last couple of weeks.The Great White Egret is some way off. 
The Ring Ouzel would also have been closer had it not been for an elderly couple who 
flushed them after I had spent ages creeping up on them (the birds not the couple!).

KING FOR A DAY.


I got this 1st winter Drake King Eider at Maenporth yesterday, where he had for 
a time, teamed up with a female Common Eider. This is a lifer for me.
These shots have been heavily cropped as it was so far out.
