Lean Times

Well another day chasing images which are of late very hard to come by (Even a Mallard has made this post) Three frustrating hours at Stithians waiting for something to happen, but alas it was one of those days. I had the day off and looked for a while that all the bird life had at Stithians. Still on a positive note I did get some shots of the locals. Decided on Hells Mouth after lunch. I was trying to get the Fulmars in flight swooping around the cliffs, have no joy I decided to take the converter off the camera. Sods law a peregrine flew past timed exactly for when I had the converter in one hand and camera in the other. Left the converter off and then managed a distant shot when it landed. This was followed by an hour at Marazion which again was more noted for the absentees today. So onto the pictures I did get:
