Water Everywhere

Ok I must admit whilst everyone seems to be out getting great images of Woodchat Shrikes, Goshawk, Whinchats, Wryneck etc I have had a poorly productive week despite trekking around the Lands End Sennen area for about 4 hours. (Everything must of seen me coming and went to hide!!!) So visited Lands End and headed towards Sennen back/forth for the afternoon. Then visited Stithians a couple of days later again nothing new.  Should have better luck this weekend, well don't think it could be any worse? Onto the pictures below a Tree Pipet (I think), Grey Wagtail, Cormorant bathing and Coot doing what Coots do. Photographing  the Grey Wagtail I lost all concentration and didn't change the camera settings from an earlier picture, hence the slow shutter speed. Whereas on the Cormorant the slow shutter was deliberate to create a motion/blur effect; which I think worked quite well for a first attempt, might just tweak up the shutter speed next time.

Thanks for all the comments, for the record my favourite is the Cormorant. To see the quality of the images it is always best to click on them and view full size. It does take a lot of time and effort to get the images and its superb when I get results that you all recognise.
