I stated a couple of posts ago that I was refurbishing our living room and that I would not be around for a week, well that's all gone out of the window.I mean all the decorating has been finished except for carpets being laid, and that should happen next week.

We just had news last week that our youngest daughter has to go into hospital on Tuesday morning at Plymouth for a back operation for slipped disc's, and will not be able  to do to much for around three months, so seeing they have two children under 11yrs old we will be doing school runs during the week and helping with her daily chores.
Hopefully I may be able to get out on the odd weekend when her husband is at home, but don't really know at the moment.

So Tuesday morning we have an early start as Nikki has to be at the hospital for 7am, and hopefully she will be back home sometime on Wednesday.

So as I said post will be a bit haphazard for the fore see able, but will try to get something on when I can. Please bear with me.

Well I must be having Blog withdrawal symptoms, just decided I've had enough decorating for today. So thought I would spend an hour on the PC and put up a post , so these two images were taken at Marazion on the same day as the Snow Bunting in the previous post.
Just my luck to be tied up with jobs at the moment,as there has been an influx of Common Cranes, a Desert Wheatear, Dusky Warbler, Pallid Harrier to name a few around Cornwall. Also the Bufflehead is still in the Loe Pool at Porthleven, Hope they stay for another week!!!.

Hi all sorry for the lack of posts at the moment, I'm in the middle of a big living room update so could be another week or so "hopefully" and then normal service should be resumed.

Went down to Marazion this morning to have a look around, first spot was a Pomarine Skua which went across the bay and out to sea.
Not much else seen on the sea or the Reed beds, so walked along to the main car park where a Snow Bunting has been for a few days.
Got on to it right away and spent the next 45 minutes taking photo's, and at times it was down to about 5 ft.
So below are a few shots of this cracking little bird.
