A few birds we met on holiday.
Bucket and spade CHECK
Tripod check, tripod? Yes tripod spare batteries, lenses’, camera Canon 5d mkiii, memory cards, camera cleaning kit, filters, and straps. “Do you really need to take all of that she asked”, as we packed for our holiday in Cornwall. Well we can’t be too careful, need to pack it just in case, might need the extra tripod as well.
So off we set, the Burr and Starr family, joining the rest of the UK (so it seemed) on the M5 motorway for the next 6 or 7 hours nose to tail. A week in the sun, and for the sceptic’s amongst you yes the sun did show its face.
We checked into our Fishermen’s Cottage in Newlyn. Straight up to the top floor balcony just to see what kind of view we had.
Ahh Cornwall the county of fantastic seascapes and dramatic sunsets.
Amazing views of the harbour, Mount Bay, St Michaels Mount and the cottage opposite. Two beautiful birds awaiting the arrival of a third. The house just down the path another couple of birds just sat in the sun with not a care in the world.
And the best thing was our wives didn’t mind us spending time with these birds, sleek well-groomed and patiently posing for the many hundreds of photos we too of them.
For the next seven days they were some of the most photographed seagulls in all of Cornwall.
