Hi Folks, Not exactly Wildlife but still we are all used here in SW UK to seeing the Red & Grey Seakings of 771 Navel Air Squadron SAR flying around. This service ceases on 31/12/2015 and will be taken over by the Coastguard Agency. So I would like you all to join me in saying a great big thank you to all the personnel past and present who were always there when we needed them.
Over the past 50+ years they have carried out many rescues on land & sea mostly in horrendous conditions.
They will be sorely missed.

MUSCOVY DUCK 8/12/2015

Made a trip down west yesterday morning, stopped off at Sandy cove to have a look around, not much happening a few Great Northern Divers and a Razorbill out in the bay and a Goldcrest and a couple of Chiffs in the shrubs next to the car park.
Then went down to Drift Res to see if the Mandarin Duck was showing, but did not locate it.
Still this Muscovy Duck was down by the gate and giving really close views, sometimes so close I could not get it all in the frame.
I know this is not a native species and is often bypassed by birders, But is still a great looking bird in its own right.

A few images from earlier in the week, from Visits to Ryans Field at Hayle And Porthleven. Its a real pain that this wet and very windy weather is still hanging around.
