I started off here, a lovely Autumn scene, the birds were singing
but playing hide and seek, i saw a long tailed tit. and a robin, and
a great tit and none of these stayed in one place for a second.
But this lovely Blackbird posed for me.
I Picked the car up and onto new pastures and saw this little group
And this beautiful Swan
And a mallard asking to clear the runway
Two cattle Egrets passing the time of day
A cormorant on his way after his breakfast.
A shoveler i believe, tell me if i am wrong, not a great photo
he was a long way away.
And a few mallards having a get together
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Hi Tony, Another success with my ID I thought it was a Shoveler so thank you for confirming. Yes I was well pleased to see the Cattle Egrets even though they were a long way away and my first photo of them. And yes it was a relief the car passed its MOT. The weather is Rubbish today its, rained all day.
