  7. Go to www.google.com and type in map falmouth cornwall england. Then click on the first (largest) map that shows up. It's a Google map.

    Then zoom in and drag the map around so that you can see different areas. Once you have found an area that has both town and a bay in it, zoom in as far as possible or maybe only one or two zoom-out clicks.

    What do you see?

  8. I see clusters of houses and buildings, and a large dock crowded with seemingly countless boats.

  9. Keep zooming in until you're about as close as a bird would be ... and remember that they fly at different altitudes. Use as much detail as you can, including what you think a bird would see IN the trees ... nests or whatever.
