A weeks holiday based in Looe, whilst not a birding break, did allow some time for a spot of photography mainly in the late afternoon. A short visit to Rame Head and I had brief views of Cirl Bunting, and this Stonechat.
This Kestrel was minding its own business until chased off by a Magpie!
Hannafore Point was only a 10 minute walk from where we were staying and held some Waders and other birds, including a couple of distant Gannets. Part 2 of this blog will cover the waders but lets start with some of the others including a Grey Heron that would sometimes come down to the rocks.
I see loads of Cormorants locally, but not usually against such a good backdrop!
There were also a few of the closely related, and slightly smaller Shags.
It's also good to see Herring Gulls in a coastal setting as well.
And some Juvenile birds.
Also, the much bigger Great black-backed Gull.
Pied Wagtails would frequent the tide line looking for insects.
But the stars, were the quite confiding Rock Pipits.
Great little birds! Part 2, coming soon.
