Heron Love Is In The Air

Sunday was a Heron day at Marazion, I arrived at 8am with the hope of photographing one of the Bittern residing at Marazion.Although I dipped on the Bittern I had a good session with a few other camera/wildlife enthusiasts, but by 1pm I was frozen to the ground, so  five hours was enough.

Camera Test

I collected my camera from South West Optics today after sending it to Nikon for a check over. I seem to suffer from dropsy with camera's. as I dropped my new D800e onto concrete. The lens took the impact and is under going repairs, but the camera was not damaged, a bonus and it didn't cost an arm and a leg for the check, good old SWOPTICS.

I dropped into Carrnsew Basin again to check out what birds are around and test the camera. The only bird of note was an adult Mediterranean Gull.

Common Tern

I went to Hayle today to photograph the over wintering Common Tern, a Common Tern in breeding plumage is a very unusual site this time of year as they normally winter in Africa.
