Hugh, a friend of mine, was keen to catch the Great Crested Grebes in Bushey Park, so this morning we duly set off. Had a very enjoyable day but didn't get back until this afternoon and, as this evening I'm being taken out for a celebratory meal by my Daughter and grandson, I've not a great deal of time to process the pictures.
The day was warm, but cloudy all day with the sun peaking through for about 5 minutes! Just shows you how wrong the forecast can be, especially when planning a photographic day!
Saw a good variety of birds including 2 Grey Wagtails (a first for me in Bushey) and a Reed Bunting singing its heart out at the top of the tree. These in addition to the normal park birds and beasts!
Just a couple of pics to be going on with and a few more to follow another day.
I'm kicking myself for cutting off the tail of this mute swan!
It being a virtually windless day, the birds were well reflected in the water.
more to come.......
