Drift and Marazion

Started at Marazion where the sun was out but it was still freezing.  Despite the good light it seemed the majority off wildlife was having a day off.  With little happening at Marazion I set off for Drift (not one of my favourite places) With a forecast of full sun all day I was a bit miffed when the sun disappeared as I got to Drift (bl--y weather forecasts!!!) A quick circuit around the left side produced nothing.  This was followed by a quick sarnie and brew to warm up, then off down the otherside to photograph the geese. After this it was a quick visit to Marazion but bad light and cold forced me to call it a day.  It is forecast cloudy tomorrow so that means the sun should be out!! We shall see.  Onto today pictures.

Little Egret: caught in quality lighting conditions at Marazion.

Gull v Coot: There was no love lost between these two, the gull was really pounding the coot, it only escaped the harrassing gull by racing into a pile of tufted ducks.

All of these are superb but the black head and coot is a winner.
