Winter Sun at Marazion (well for an hour!)

Finally a break in the weather, no wind and sunshine, a great start weather-wise to the day.  Well the good conditions lasted about an hour, lol. Did mange a few shots before it clouded over and the wind picked up. Apparently Bitterns were flying all over the place in the hour before I got there, but this also stopped as the wind picked up so only saw a couple at distance, however there are still three confirmed birds over wintering.  A Stoat has also been sighted again I saw it three days ago and again is was spotted before I turned up this morning. Well then onto the images from Saturday.
