These images were taken at St Gothians Nature Reserve, adjacent to Gwithian Towans in July. About forty pairs breed nearby and come to the reserve to feed, bathe and preen. These birds afforded close views in strong early morning light. Swallows also use the area and freely mix with the martins. Exposure was dropped to -1.0 and ISO was set to 200. WB remained on Cloudy setting to give a bit more warmth to the image. All images are original and uncropped.
