We met up with Sam, Derek, Ben & Poppy this morning on our patch, which Derek obviously knows his way around much better than we do, being Cornish born and bred and a bird watcher since he could walk I think! It was a lovely morning (despite the rain and the fact that the pain in my finger was distracting me somewhat!). We had to give up and go home to get dry, but after a couple of hours of work I decided that as it was the last day of my week off I had to get back out. Off to Par and a Gull watch! Consequently I have many Gull shots and some of a very sociable Pied Wagtail! I added a few species to the day count at the pool and we had a walk along the beach, which we had all to ourselves with only birds for company until about five young men with a motorbike decided to descend!

A sensible adult...

A delinquent that SHOULD be old enough to know better!...


Proud of myself!...
Watching the shenanigans...
