Some recent images in Cornwall

Below are some images taken over the last month around the county.  There's been some gaps in the blog posts recently, mainly because of being busy at work and some family things which take up time.  Plus it's dark in the mornings and evenings so sadly my hobby has taken a back seat!  Anyway, these shots below are a round-up of what activity there has been:

Whooper Swan at Helston boating lake - Jan 2013 - calling continuously
Golden Plover at Colliford, part of a flock of 50 feeding in the fields by Dozmary Pool.
Firecrest at Helston Sewerage Works. A Siberian Chiffchaff was also present but I couldn't get the right shot. Try again some sometime!
Black-necked Grebe at Newlyn Jan 2013. One of my favourite images of this long-stayer in the harbour.
Chiffchaff at Swanvale - quite a pale bird but the buff flanks rule out Siberian.

Male Black Redstart at Portscatho harbour - this individual has been wintering here.


  1. Amazing captures Steve,love the third image of the Whooper Swan,the droplets look so real.

  2. Very nice captures Steve, especially the firecrest really tricky to get at Helston.
