Lisa and I went down to the Lizard peninsula today in hope of connecting with the visiting six Cranes. I had heard that Steve Rogers (SW Optics) was also on the hunt for them so I phoned him from Lisa' mobile and his directions was spot on. He said they had flown and he was tracking them around the Kennack Sands area. I stayed around the original location and within twenty minutes they had returned. We viewed them from the road that ran by Little Trethvas farm towards Cadgwith and on to Grade, I would say around 300 to 400 metres past Little Trethvas and they are located in maize stubble (corn on the cob) on the right hand side. Photography was difficult as I was fighting the light, basically shooting into the sun and they were distant, the 800mm lens helped immensely.
Mondays Pelagic - On last nights pelagic we saw our 6th Wilsons Petrel of the year.
