Just a few gulls on Carbis bay beach late afternoon and yes, complete with crappy sound (definitely external mic/sound recorder after xmas!).
Ive got some flight video of the Balearic Shearwaters which im about to edit but there is a lot of dodgy panning so dont expect anything decent if i do upload anything!
Still 100's/1000's birds offshore so if you haven't been yet, what are you waiting for!!
off to Shropshire on Friday until the day before Christmas eve so not sure where we'll be going up there (Gigrin, Rutland maybe??) but I will be trying to hunt down some Waxwings so stay tuned after Christmas for hopefully some images!
Merry Christmas to everyone if i dont update my blog between now and the 25th
haven't taken many images lately due to ringing but managed to get out on Wednesday to photo the Purple Sands at Penzance. My patients paid off as I was lying down and had them down to less that a meter (some walking within a foot of my legs!) I wish I could have stayed longer but I wasn't paying attention to the tide and I only noticed I should move when the camera strap was soaked by a wave (luckily I had my hand under the camera or I would have been testing the weather proofness of the 7D!) By the time i got back to dry land the area I was lying in was underwater!
Worth it tho', shot a bit of video to but i haven't looked at that yet/been bothered to edit it.
PS: NO birds were flushed in the making of this post (Note to the Birdforum brigade!!!)
