Things have been moving along nicely with my Wetland Bird Survey research. I’ve conducted 9 interviews across Cornwall and look forward to my final interview in February with a counter who has heronries as part of his patch. This weekend was the January count for the Wetland Bird Survey and I spent some time at Siblyback Lake on Bodmin Moor and on the Hayle Estuary, nr St Ives. Both days were interesting in terms of weather – bitterly cold, but when bathed in sunshine – absolutely perfect! I will write more soon, but for now – please enjoy this little video of a gull on the Hayle Estuary playing with a golf ball.
