I heard there were a couple of interesting birds on Cors Ddyga so drove over as the sun was shining
Local wetlands with river running through
Nice and peaceful with the Swan and various waders having a swim
Mr or Mrs Coot having a browse
and a chew
then a bird flew over and scattered them all - I thought it was a buzzard or crow
Until I got home and looked on the computer, - could it be..... a Marsh Harrier?? go on....make my day!!!!
Peace reigned again - think there could be a Shoveller out there
It's OK all safe now:-)
Aha, this is what I hoped to see
Pair of Glossy Ibis, OK I have seen some cracking photos of them - but these are mine!!!!!
Then they decided they had had enough and flew further away to join the Geese.
Little Egret decides to join in. There were two Great Egrets around but I didn't find them:(
View across the fields
then the other direction
All for now as this just crashed but I will leave the other few I have for another time
Lot to learn
