Quiet Day with Bloody End

Had to wait in for the newly aquired Nikon 300mm F4 which I intend using as my walkabout lens. It duly arrived, spotless condition two weeks old only, £250 off bargain!!! Used it in some Snow Bunting images and first impressions are good. The diggers were doing their usual this morning carving up Marazion Marsh (RSPB and British Rail and danger of this activity ceasing or actually being sorted?) No sign of Bittern today, plenty of water rail, etc. A long distance shot of a long tailed tit gets on the blog as I haven't seen them for a while.  Resident Kestrel was hunting at Marazion. Nothing in photo distance at Ryan's Field so onto todays images:
