A very nice (but windy) afternoon at Marazion. Great White Egret seen flying on and off (very briefly) about 6-7 times. Also good to see a Bittern. The main surprise was 2 Adders. The one in the photo (male?) was quite small but the (female) was a lot(!!!) larger. Thanks to Bob for letting me use the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, Love the DoF. I think ill get a 100mm macro before a 600mm ;-)

More from Church Cove

I found 2 more images taken yesterday. The Dunnock's and Blue Tit's are very photo-genic. The Woodchat Shrike image was Manual focused so it isn't that sharp. Still a nice image though.

Woodchat Shrike Pt.2

Re-visited Church cove this afternoon. Hoping the light would be better as it was overcast in Carbis bay and as I found yesterday that in the afternoon the sun is in a bad position for photo's. As we arrived the sun came out, for once that was bad. Anyway as usual the weather got worse, the wind picked up and it clouded over. It was darker than I had hoped.
ISO 640, 1/640 tripod mounted. Better images of the shrike Here

Woodchat Shrike at Church Cove

Woodchat Shrike at Churchcove. If you plan to go down try to get there early as in the afternoon the bird is very harshly "side-lit" (as you can see in the pics). Also I have added a phone-scope and a failed attempt of video-scoping. For a better video of the shrike Click Here

Purple Sandpiper

A few from last weeks CWT field trip to Jubilee Pool. The weather was terrible but the water droplets made the images look a bit different. Still a good turn out despite the weather!
Thanks to Derek and Colin for showing us the Little Ringed Plover's at Trevraven Meadows today. tho' Distant, I may post a phone-scope later.
