Got back from a very lovely holiday and another few days with Pete today - I thought NT properties would be very full and opted for Arundel WWT after a visit to Mum and some essential shopping..
Youngsters everywhere... including this coot babe - just the one!! Mum was attending to the nest..
Underneath the bird feeders were a couple of male Mandarins!
I went into the Reed Bed Hide expecting to see the usual nesting of Swallows and found a very young Wood Pigeon..
Lots of Greylag Geese families about..
and then into another hide where two Swallows perched on posts just in front of the hide.. so obliging of then :D
A parent of young ones, needs their sleep
Some of the young ones..
One of the 'captive' swans bathing.. his partner was looking after their youngsters :D
Asleep in the warmth of the afternoon amonst the daisies!
Up high in a tree... from the song I would say Sedge Warbler... but..
and yet another family of Greylags.
nice end to an excellent holiday..
