    A great set of pics from todays birding in Cornwall.
    The highlight for me is the occurence of Marsh Tits at Stithians which were until S.Taylor put up the feeder recently, unrecorded at the reservoir as far as I know. Just hope stiths hasn’t knicked the ones from College Reservoir or we could have a feeding station war on our hands!
