Tails From Marazion

I spent an enjoyable weekend home at Marazion at the weekend and despite the obvious cold and Wintery conditions managed to take some images on the Marsh and around the town. I have displayed some of these images in this post and they include a Buzzard, Pied Wagtail, Song Thrush, Water Rail, Meadow Pipit, Rock Pippit and Redshank. Whilst my Water Rail Images do not match Bob Sharples excellent images taken the previous day I am fairly happy with mine as they are record shots for me. My run of luck with the Bittern also ended on the Marsh two visits on the Saturday and Sunday and two no shows for me. It was seen however and came out for close up views on the Sunday afternoon after I had departed the Marsh and went to Penzance to watch the Cornish Pirates at last beat Bristol at the Mennaye Field. I was also very pleased to meet a couple of local Cornish based Wildlife photographers whom I had previously coresponded with and admired their work. I was also hopefully able to pick up a couple of photography tips which involve the use of Auto Iso and the use of the Cloudy setting for White Balance. We shall see?

  2. Great set of images. I use cloudy for my white balance setting on my Nikon D300 as I find it improves the overall colour of the images.
