CASTLE BEACH, FALMOUTH

IT'S SUPRISING WHAT BIRDS YOU CAN FIND ON THE BEACH.
EVEN A THRUSH, A WREN AND A CHIFFCHAFF 
WERE PICKING THROUGH THE SEAWEED.

BELATED 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'

WE WOULD LIKE TO START BY WISHING 
EVERYONE A BELATED 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'.

NOT A LOT ABOUT AT THE MOMENT AND TO BE 
QUITE HONEST OUR HEART IS NOT REALLY IN IT.

WE ARE OFF TO BRAZIL IN 6 WEEKS TIME AND 
THINK THAT MAY DO US SOME GOOD AND 
HOPEFULLY IGNITE OUR ENTHUSIASM AGAIN.

ALL OVER THE PLACE!

 I'VE BEEN ALL OVER THE PLACE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS.
THE FIRST SHOTS WERE FROM THE ST.ERTH AND PENZANCE AREA.
AFTER THAT I WAS BACK AT THE ORCHARD WHERE THERE WERE A FEW BRAMBLING, 
NOT SOMETHING WE SEE A LOT OF AROUND TRURO. 
THE LAST THREE SHOTS WERE AT FEOCK CHURCH. I WAS PARTICULARLY 
PLEASED TO SEE THE HAWFINCH AS WE HAVE ONLY EVER SEEN THEM ABROAD.

FIRECRESTS EVERYWHERE

THERE ARE A LOT OF FIRECRESTS AROUND AT THE MOMENT AND THIS IS 
THE FIRST YEAR THAT I HAVE MANAGED SOME DECENT SHOTS OF THEM.









SUE ALSO CAME OUT YESTERDAY TO TRY OUT HER NEW NIKON 70-300 LENS.

 PUT ON BIRDGUIDES AND WAS AWARDED POTW.  
THIS IS A FIRST FOR ME SO VERY PLEASED WITH THAT 
AND A BIG THANK-YOU TO THE PEOPLE AT BIRDGUIDES.
