  • A lovely scene and photo Paul, thank goodness the swan's companion was a GCG and not a Coot - or worse still two Coots lol

    great photos all.

    Sometimes when you are just finding your feet and new to the area a spot of feather tidying can knock you right off balance and you end up with  (ahem ! )  muck on your face  !!      

    (record shots of a young Avocet chick)

    I know I shouldn't laugh, but I  had to chuckle when I saw the pics of the avocet chick falling over.

    On a more serious note, brilliant photos

    You may just have a valid point there, Hazel. :-)

  • The local Reed Warblers are showing exceptionally well this year. I almost always see one whenever I wander past.

    Luckily, its beak is already full of beetle, because there's a photobombing (or mad) insect flying straight at it

    "I can do impressions, you know. This is my 'Nuthatch'."

    There's even a second RW in the background …

    This could have been a classic if there hadn't been a reed in the way.

  • Amazing Nige, I'd just like to see them like that, let alone take pictures!

    Best wishes

  • Always nice to be pleasantly surprised when downloading photos. I didn't realize the moorhen chicks reflection allowed you to see it's feet below the water when I took the photo.
