Sunny Cornwall "at last"

Well it has been a long wait but finally after some weeks the light and wind was good for photography, so  a lot of cameras out and about today. A bit foggy early on but this soon burned off to allow the winter sun to shine through. Marazion was quiet apart from the Reed Cutter. Did see the Bittern so that is still there, Kestrel made an appearance also. Then I went to the boating lake in Helston for another go at the Egyptian Goose, light here was fantastic. So onto the images:

Chiff Chaff

Kestrel

Cormorant (thought it was tangled in a fishing line, but this was not the case)

Egyptian Goose

Mallard enjoying the sun

Bob, excellent pictures, and such variety of birds. The timing of the shots is also very good.
