While the rest of the country was fighting rain and snow we were in Conwall getting sunburn. Well on one day anyway. We were staying at the Lizard before moving to Sennen for the rest of the week. The two Choughs are offspring of the breeding pair from last year. The breeding pair were busy nest building but were still tollerating their young very close to the nest site.

Later in the week at Trengwainton Gardens it was warm, sunny and with an abundance of nectaring flowers it was alive with insects (and birds).
