Went down to see the Snowy Owl on Friday ( I fell in the Gorse, sue ), although we saw it, it was too far away to get a decent picture. Had to settle for a Wren instead, not quite the same.
The Little Egret was taken at the Library in Hayle.

Well, we went out over the weekend and saw very little, usual stuff really except for one which was too far away to get a decent photo and that was a Hen Harrier at Nanquidno.
Went to Gothian Sands looking for the Ring Ouzel, no joy, just Pintail and Scaup and the resident Buzzard looking for his next meal, talking of which we did see a Carrion Crow with a Frog, of course Duncan had to go one better with the Coot at Stithians on Sunday.
These shots were taken while out and about and also around the garden, nothing very spectacular. we very often get Squirrels in our Cherry tree and we quite like them, (couldn't eat a whole one).

Well, we have not posted anything for almost a fortnight and that's because we haven't done very much but we are going out this week-end and are determined to remedy that.
In the mean time here are a couple of pictures of some of our pets, Rosie the white Boxer and Beau, my beautiful British short-hair cat. I know some of you birders probably don't approve but we love cats and actually have 3.
