Swanpool, Helston and Marazion

An early start at Swanpool to see if I could photograph the Common Scoter. When I arrived it was duly being fed at the pool edge where John Rowe said it had been for about 15 minutes.  I set up and it left in about a minute so just some record shots, may try again if it sticks around. But I most people have found out the large telphoto's are just to big when the bird is feeding in close!  Helston was quiet as was Marazion so here are some images from today. Early post due to persistent cloud at Maza!
