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

Nice set of shots, Bob. Always good to see a Goosander.
Cracking set Bob looks like you had a good day, my favourite is the Crow.
It is great that you managed to get out, Bob--a good start to the new year. Thanks for the gorgeous photos.
For a quiet day, you came back with a great selection of shots.
Another set of lovely photos Bob, as Hazel has said I also love looking at your photos.

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.
