A Choppy Carnsew Basin followed by Marazion

Taking a break from the Christmas party season I managed to get out today.  First stop was Carnsew Basin to see if I could locate the Great Northern Diver. Well a walk down without the camera for a quick look and bugger there it was right in front of me. And yes by the time I got back with all the kit set up it was gone. I did manage one distant picture before it disappeared from view, and I couldn't find it again. The wind was Baltic and very strong buffeting me and the camera, not a nice place to be so after a short while I headed to Marazion where a lone Kestrel was out looking for lunch.
