SOME OF MY FAVOURITE PLACES.

 This Grasshopper Warbler was taken at Goss Moor.
The rest were taken over the past seven days or so at Stithians and Marazion.

CHOUGH IN WEST CORNWALL

We caught up with a group of Chough in West Cornwall yesterday.
At one point there were 12 together and surprisingly some had no rings. 
Maybe they originally came from a nest that no-one had located.
Love the way they goose-step instead of hopping & running like most other Crows.

CARS IN CUBA

HERE IS A SELECTION OF THE OLD AMERICAN CARS THAT WE SAW IN CUBA, 
MOSTLY IN HAVANA WHICH IS A BEAUTIFUL CITY AND MADE ALL 
THE MORE SO WHEN EVERY OTHER CAR LOOKS LIKE THESE.

This is the nearest I'll get to owning one of these.
