A very nice (but windy) afternoon at Marazion. Great White Egret seen flying on and off (very briefly) about 6-7 times. Also good to see a Bittern. The main surprise was 2 Adders. The one in the photo (male?) was quite small but the (female) was a lot(!!!) larger. Thanks to Bob for letting me use the Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, Love the DoF. I think ill get a 100mm macro before a 600mm 😉
