Work commitments meant that we could only bird locally over the week-end, apart from
a short visit to Stithians Reservoir. The Dippers are near to were we live and this is an
unusual shot with the Dipper's eyes closed, showing white eye-lids.

Also did some Macro at work, In my lunch hour of course. John

Our visit to England !

We went into England (Exminster) at the weekend to visit our son and daughter-in-law and managed to get a bit of birding done at the same time. Strange goings-on up there with Cormorants on wires!! and White-headed Blackbirds.

I have never seen a Swan bathing with such force, at times on his back and almost completely submerged. It made quite a nice series of shots. Sue

Ring Ouzels

Took the Ring Ouzels at Rosewall Hill, St. Ives.

Have included this (awful) shot of the elusive Dartford Warbler just to prove we did see one. (Opposite Eagles Nest)

These Yellow Hammers were taken earlier in the week.

Macro for a change.

No birds today, but I have been doing some Macro while out and about at work.
Apologies for any Moths that are incorrectly named,
