Preening at Warnham

Just a quick visit to Warnham today.. very quiet in the very warm afternoon sun - it was a welcome change to get the temperatures back up again...

However the first two pics I took at Rye Meads at the weekend.  The Mallard is balanced precariously on the post mostly used by the Kingfishers.

And a posing Red Admiral.

Today, as I arrived at Warnham, a robin was having a preen by the side of the pool

And in the feeder area, a female Pheasant was having a dust bath.

I walked on to the Heron Hide.  A few Herons about and a couple of buzzards flying high and calling.  It seems that there's only 1 young Great Crested Grebe now with one adult.  The adult pair and three young, it is felt, have now flown onto pastures new.... I wish them well.

Mallard having a bathe!

and finally a perching Dragon!

A pleasant stroll albeit a short one!

Hi Tricia

The "dragon" is a Common Darter Dragonfly. Very good shot.

Thanks Maurice.. I actually knew this one ( for a change ) but should have labelled it.

Thanks as usual... :)
