Murky conditions at Sandy Cove

A quick trip out today as for the second day running conditions have been dismal (bring back the freezing temperatures and blue skies!) On the way to Sandy Cove, the yellow thing in the sky popped out so I stopped off a Marazion for an hour, and got a picture of a swan!! Onto Sandy Cove and the murky conditions were in to stay.  Pictures (distant) off Great Crested Grebe and Eider and a bit closer for the Oyster Catcher and Grey Phalerope, but it was pretty dark even for the Nikon D3s. So onto the record shots from today:

Hey Bob, Great images considering the distance these are. I found that Phal yesterday and had two Slavonian Grebes and the Eider at Sandy Cove, but it was pissing down so I didn't bother with the camera.

Great catch with the Eider Bob, and that Swan posed beautifully for you. :)
