Managed a few hours out wildlife watching for the first time in ages and visited Low barns Wildlife reserve in Co Durham. On the whole it was a quiet day, the highlight being the solitary drake Goosander but the sunshine certainly lifted spirits more than than the cold dropped them

Thanks, I do try whenever possible to catch a bit of behaviour rather han just a portrait shot - its not always possible but its an aim.
Another set of lovely photos Bob, as Hazel has said I also love looking at your photos.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
For a quiet day, you came back with a great selection of shots.
It is great that you managed to get out, Bob--a good start to the new year. Thanks for the gorgeous photos.
Cracking set Bob looks like you had a good day, my favourite is the Crow.

Nice set of shots, Bob. Always good to see a Goosander.
