Cornwall Holiday – Day One

We started our trip by heading to Cornwall via Devon (there ain’t no other way!) and broke the trip up by stopping off at Roadford Reservoir, which wasn’t too far off the track. The reservoir itself was very quiet with only a few geese and ducks in one corner, so having had tea and cake we decided to drive further along the perimeter to the suggested ‘birding’ location. En route we spotted a raptor landing in a tree alongside the road. We were very close to a Common Buzzard, which was a great start to the holiday! I tried to close enough to get a decent snap but as I approached it took-off and headed out across the field, so this was the best I could get:

The views from this side of the reservoir across the Devon countryside were stunning and the weather boded well for the holiday:
