Another Bird Photographed, Another UFO Reported

Bird Reported To Be UFO

     Ok, so as to not touch any nerves, (and if I do I apologize in advance) before I offer my critique of this latest news regarding “one of the best [UFO photos] ever taken,” according to The Sun . . . ad nauseum; let me prime the pump by admitting that I am guilty of publishing pictures of alleged “ET craft,” as well as UFOs here on the “Knowledge is Power” web-site; however, I do so cum grano salis as I take them for just what they are.

In my view a photograph of a distant object “without supportive evidence,” is just that, and is almost “worthless” in regards to evidence of an “unknown craft” of some sort. The examples of “IFOs,” particularly birds, and “flying insects” alleged to be otherwise is to numerous to count.

From Britain, The Sun reported:
“THIS stunning photo of a UFO over Cornwall was last night hailed by experts as one of the best ever taken in Britain.

The classic flying saucer shape is seen above two ships. And UFO watchers believe it could be proof we are NOT alone.

Kelvin Barbery snapped the mystery object from a coastal path between Swanpool and Maenporth, near Falmouth. In a weird twist, Kelvin, 55, did not even see the UFO at the time.

He thought he was just taking a sea view — but when he loaded the digital camera card on to his computer, the round metallic “craft” was in the centre of the shot, about two miles away.
Hasn’t anyone looked at this pic closely?! Having seen so many that are similar to this one, in my view it is “clearly a bird” flying perpendicular to the camera; the shot is a profile, if you will of a “bird in flight” (again). The wing (upper center) is clearly visible!

Undoubtedly, and sadly much time will be given to this image; this is not to say that these photographs when they pop up should be ignored, but for Britain’s “print news” (one would guess a tabloid) to suggest that this [photo] is “hailed by experts as one of the best ever taken in Britain” is pure flapdoodle, and only mucks up the works for legitimate sightings, and or images.

It seems clear that “The Sun” realizes the popularity of recent “UFO sightings” in Britain, and is “feeding the fire!”

The Sun further states:
“Nick Pope, one of Britain’s foremost UFO experts, said the photo was one of the best he had seen.”
Quite frankly, “I find this hard to believe,” and will be firing off an inquiry to Nick in short order. (Methinks the paper took some liberties).

In any event, it’s out there, and as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow “some folks” will swear that ET stopped in Britain for fish ‘n’ chips.


  1. I agree 100%. The instant I saw this 'UFO', I could see clearly it was a seagull, probably a large variety such as a herring gull. I live on the coast and see dozens of gulls every day - and have many images of my own with so-called flying saucers in, which, when enlarged, are just gulls. In this image, the classic gull profile is very apparent, its head, wing and tail being clearly demarcated. No-one would love this to be a genuine UFO more than I would, but alas, it's just a bird. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so!

  2. I am 57, have been fascinated with ufos since I was 10, don't know why, but that does not look like a bird to me. I've heard programs that say we have been on the moon since 1962,,with all the sights available,pictures, accounts of abductions and rumors that the USA is in possesion of alien craft, why can't someone come up with definitive proof that these crafts and the beings that fly them,,actually exist? Please, men in black, knock on my door and tell me the truth! Just discovered your site,,will be back for more research.

  3. Looks like a bird to me, perhaps a pelican? If the wings were flapping out more, and you added in blur and same lighting, this image would appear near identical.

  4. ditto, richelle. ;)

  5. Definitely a gull. It's much closer than the ships also, which would make it very small compared to the ships. And this from someone who is no skeptic or debunker.

    This is a case where The Sun and This is Cornwall both are being too sensationalistic.

  6. Cornwall,(Land of the Giants) refer to Gen. 6. KJV

  7. That's definitely a bird.

  8. okay,,birdman, the truck driver is outnumbered and convinced due to a lack of experience at identifying these things,,I will research this site when I get home, but is there ANY proof? that aliens from another planet exist and are flying these crafts???
