A QUICK CATCH-UP.

JUST A QUICK POST BEFORE OUR HOLS.
THE FULMAR WAS TAKEN AT HELL'S MOUTH 
AND THE GLAUCOUS GULL WAS AT GWITHIAN.

CIRL BUNTING

ON FRIDAY WE WENT LOOKING FOR CIRL BUNTING AND WE WERE 
NOT DISAPPOINTED. THERE WERE MORE THAN WE 
HAVE EVER SEEN OF THIS VERY PRETTY BIRD.
A GOOD RESULT FOR THE CONSERVATION EFFORT.

CASTLE BEACH, FALMOUTH

IT'S SUPRISING WHAT BIRDS YOU CAN FIND ON THE BEACH.

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.
