The photo's below were taken on the same day as the previous photographs of the swans at Marazion. They are Sanderling and Dunlin well into their breeding plumage. They amazed me how close they allowed me to them, although they were avidly feeding. I got annoyed with the so called dog lovers allowing their dogs (and encouraging them) to chase the birds and spoil their feeding routine.




  1. Such great shots! The last one is perfect. Good captures.

  2. Lovely shots. I'm a dog lover, but I know exactly what you mean. I had a similar experience at Par last week. First with the birds and a dog walker, and then a few minutes later walking through the gorse, a woman with a J Russell, encouraging it to chase Rabbits. As she saw me and smiled, looking pleased with herself, I gave her MY look, and I never saw her or the dog again.
