What a wonderful day for birds and bees!
The sun shone, the sky was blue and the birds were there....well, at least some of them. Chuffed to see the Ruff at London Wetland Centre today - lifer for me (you'll have to imagine it as it was way too far out for a picture).
The sun on the still water made for some great reflections to day.
Shot straight into the sun as these Canada Geese flew over.... came out better than I'd thought it would !
Gadwalls dozing the in warm sunshine
and female Shovelers showing off their lovely greens...
A young Song Thrush managed to find a snack of a snail amongst the shrubbery.
And Migrant Darters..... darted about
First there was one...
Then there were two...
and then three before...
becoming two again.
Couldn't resist this poppy...
or this one!! Sorry for the repetitions!
and finally, some Lizards really enjoyed basking in the sun!
What a beautiful day it was..... hope there's going to many more of these - especially at the beginning of October!
A lover of wildlife and birds in particular and a keen photographer
who's learning all the time!
For me there's nothing better than the great outdoors and escaping into
it as often as I can; even if it's only a walk very locally. I love the
sea and water in any form. There's something magical about reflections
in very still water.
