I came across these Goldies whilst out looking for the Short Eared Owl ,hoping to get a better photo. No Owl to be found.The photo below, I thought may have harboured an American Golden Plover (the darker bird at the front group). After contacting the Godfather, Steve Rogers and Paul Freestone of Cornwall Birding we concluded that it is probably a European in transition to its breeding colours. As for the Owl, Mark Harris photograph of it is about fifty times better than mine,so here is his Flickr link . http://www.flickr.com/photos/mark50d/sets/72157613518941322/
I wish I didn't show him the location ( Only joking Mark).Click on the image to enlarge
