Behold the birds of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are you not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

During the summer we were able to get away to a secluded chalet in Cornwall.  We were perched high above the sands of Whitsand Bay and had a 180 degree panoramic view of the sea.  Whilst eating breakfast we watched Royal Naval manoeuvres, dolphins in the bay below, and listened to several of these wonderful Whitethroats creating their distinctive scritchy scratchy call.

From a photographic standpoint the light on the coast of Cornwall is a real boon, and many perching birds posed beautifully for yours truly.


Canon 30D, ISO 100, F5.6, 400mm focal length (using an EF100-400 zoom) and taken at 11:13 1st June 2009.
