Barnes and Bushy

Not been able to blog much recently or visit my friends' blogs either - for the latter, my apologies but hopefully I will catch up before too long.

I managed a trip over to Barnes on Sunday to meet up with a friend. It was bright and sunny and despite the overall cold, the sun definitely had some warmth in it. Not many birds about and those that were, were having to find a bit of unfrozen water.

But the "collection" birds were entertaining. These Hooded Mergansers were hilarious to watch as they bathed in the freezing cold water.


Bit annoyed that I'd chopped the wing tip, but they move so fast!


And these were dozing in the warm sun..

Had a short walk in Bushy this afternoon..... very briefly the sun came out and the low angle lit the trees and frozen water.

I loved those collection birds when I visited, and the Hooded Mergansers were one of my favourites. Real beauties. Lovely captures of them Tricia.

Well Tricia! tut-tut, a clipped wingtip in your photo, LOL.

A great selection of photo's again.
Only one complaint from me, there are no Gulls about in an otherwise
near flawless range of shots.
That was said with (tongue in cheek)

Wonderful shots of the birds bathing. I'm afraid that I'm behind in reading blogs as well.
