Marazion Marsh

We spent a couple of hours walking around Marazion Marsh to-day, as did a lot of other birders, looking for the Citrine Wagtail and Spotted Crake. Managed to get the Wagtail (pity about the grass), but no sign of the Crake. There was nothing else about except for these lovely Migrant Hawkers.

  8. Beautiful photos! The wagtail shots are supurb. This is a new bird for me. There are a few wagtails in Alaska but not in the Interior. I like the dragonfly photos too. Very nice!

  15. Well done with the Wagtail, lovely photos too. I enjoyed catching up with the great pics on your last few posts and was very sorry to hear of the computer crash and loss of your photos, I think we all dread that!

  18. Thanks everyone for your comments.
    Following advice from several of you we found our blog pics.for 2009 in Picasa and worked out how to download them back to our computer. They came back perfectly sized (not thumbnails),so now all we have lost is stuff that was never on the blog.Big sigh of relief from John!
    Thanks for all your help.

  19. Great shots of the Cit Wag, nicely showing the ID features. I was gutted for you to read about your computer crash, that happened to me a while back and I lost all my unbacked up shots! Now I keep a load of DVD's to burn copies of all my shots to.
