I have recently purchased the DVD set of two, of Birds In Cornwall by John Chapel. I found this DVD of exceptional quality and very useful for identification of bird species. For me it not only helped my own personal ID skills, it was a journey of nostalgia, as I had seen most of what is contained in the DVD. All those wonderful American Waders that landed in Cornwall having their migration disrupted by Hurricanes ripping up through the American eastern seaboard, and sending them in our direction, the low water levels at Drift reservoir enticing them to feed on mudded areas. John has included birds from the length and breadth of the county including the Isles Of Scilly to include species such as a Baltimore Oriole. In my opinion it is well worth purchasing.
male Hen Harrier - one from a few weeks back that I had overlooked as they were pretty poor -- a brief fly by at Manby Flashes - the only male I have seen this winter
