Good timing and a bit of luck delivered the Great White Egret to my camera at Marazion. Within ten minutes the Great White Egret showed beautifully, flying in and landing in the front of the reserve. As usual I was looking in the wrong direction when I heard Rod Farnes spraying and praying with his Canon as we photographers do so I started doing the same.
With cracking male Wheatears, and a few waders on the beach amounted to an enjoyable couple of hours. However normally when a Bar Tailed Godwit is around this time of yea,r they are in their glorious breeding plumage, as usual for me this one was rough as rats and with a limp.
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!
