I went to Marazion tonight with the hope of seeing and capturing an image of the Purple Heron in residence in the last few days. No luck with the Heron, but I was captivated by the Swifts feeding voraciously on the Marsh.
We have successfully overwintered two hedgehogs, when we picked them up at the beginning ofwinter they weighed in at around 250 grams, they now weigh a kilo each. Release time is here, and the image is my charge for 7 months full board. We will release them into our garden and hopefully they will stay but that wll be up to them.
Whilst walking down through Kenidjack valley tonight we came across this Fox (Vixen) hunting in a field, we saw some interesting behaviour when a ginger tom cat entered the field. He stared the fox down, who seemed to submit by rolling on her back and exposing her belly. The Vixen was also sniffing out, and digging up food she had previously secreted away.
Sam and Lisa are keen photographers with a particular interest in birds and wildlife in Cornwall. We have always been interested in photography but the improvements to digital cameras have renewed our interest. We hope you will enjoy viewing our photo blog!
