Week-end at Tehidy Woods,Gothian Sands and Marazion Marsh.

ON A SAD NOTE: Last year I was lucky enough to take photos of a Peregrine family that were nesting below the viaduct that I was working on, they had 4 young. This year they only reared 2 and unfortunately one of the parents and one of the young were found dead on the track, having been hit by a train, an all too common occurrence but it is usually Buzzards.

Is this a strange coloured female of the Common Blue?


















Thought this pattern was Interesting.

  1. Sad news on the Peregrines, on a brighter note another good varied selection of images. Looking at your macros you would have a great time getting shots at Porthgwarra, butterflies and insects etc in abundance at present

  2. Lovely selection of images I love the swallow family.Looks like Peregrines have had a bad year in Cornwall given what happened at St.Anthony and heard an adult at Hor point went missing before the breeding season.
