North Cornwall (just for a change)

We went to Porth Reservoir on Saturday for the Ring-necked Duck. This was the first male we've seen but it stayed too far away, even for digi-scoping, so this is just a record shot.
We also went to Walmsley Sanctuary and even there, everything kept it's distance. Nice to bump into Steve Rogers and his wife, and a big thanks to Steve for all his camera advice(Sue).

West Cornwall

Haven't done much birding lately but spent today around the West of Cornwall, down at Drift, Newlyn, Sennen and Hayle. Nice to bump into Sam at Drift and also Richard.
Some of these shots were digi-scoped by John and some taken by me.

Local Birds.

These were taken on a friends bird-table, he's lucky enough to get a Nuthatch.

The rest were taken locally when out with the Dog (in the snow).

A weeks birding.

We haven't done much birding since getting back from Gambia, but here are some shots taken over the last week or so, Mostly from St.Clements, Hayle and Marazion. Is this Warbler a Chiffchaff? It's not a very good image but the underparts and throat were very white, not at all buffish. Seems a lot of white for a Chiffy.

These 2 Buzzards were hunting together at St. Gothian Sands. Not sure if they are a pair or
an adult with a young one.

Included this shot of the Moon just because I like it. Sue
