Female Montagu's Harrier, Croft Pascoe. The Lizard, 26/04/2014

This female Montagu's Harrier was found at Croft Pascoe on The Lizard. These elegant raptors no longer breed in Cornwall and are only seen in the county during Spring and Autumn migration as they pass through heading to and from their breeding grounds in Eastern Britain.
I filmed her battling against the wind as she hunted over the heathland.

Bottlenose Dolphin. Newlyn.

A Bottlenose Dolphin has been frequenting the harbour at Newlyn in West Cornwall for the past week or so. It is very inquisitive and investigates just about every passing boat and often plays with the buoys outside the harbour mouth as seen here.
