After a really grotty morning it was a relief to pop to Abberton and find that it was actually dry for a while! Some of my favourites were about, and being obliging:
I don't usually think of herons as fluffy, but this one certainly is.
A starling enjoys a refreshing bath!
An unusually fearless crow didn't flee from the camera - that made a change.
It was a lovely surprise to see this grey wagtail.
Great crested grebes are so beautiful.
One of this year's black-headed gulls.
A mournful cormorant.
The sound of thunderous wings drew my attention to these mute swans.
Finishing with a typically stroppy pose from the black-headed gull.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
