Today at the Beach

I ended up today on Marazion beach opposite the marsh. Well it wasn't exactly beach weather with cold temperatures and a freezing northly wind mean't it was going to be cold out there, and I was not  disappointed it was freezing!  There were some birds however that  appeared to be enjoying it or maybe they were so hungry they had to endure it also to feed.  Lot of birds were feeding and foraging on the seaweed on the beach. The low position of the winter sun made photography awkward, but I persevered and here are the results below, not my best photos but conditions were pants!!! I am not sure on a couple so I have left them blank, please ID them if you want.  Even with a guide I still can't get some of them.

These are excellent Bob. You certainly got the best out of the conditions.
Can't help much with the ID's though.
A guess at the first; female Redstart?

Great pics bob, the top one looks like a black redstart and the bottom one a dunlin.
I could be wrong though.
nice shots
Ash
