Just A Few Birds

Its that time of year now when the Summer migrants have gone and the Winter ones have not yet arrived in good numbers. So in the absence of anything else a few images of resident species is called for.

Grey Heron

Immature Great-crested Grebe


Black-headed Gull

Mute Swan

Dunnock




Moorhen









Male Mallard





Great Tit

  1. These are ALL wonderfully shot photographs with stunning reflections. I have never seen a GC Grebe at this immatture stage so that was lovely to see Roy.

  2. Lovely series of photos, I particularly like the ones of the Swans and the Mallard. We already have a fair number of Redwings up here so they should be down in the Fens pretty soon :-)

    1. Thanks Alison, yes the Dunnock is often overlooked, but has some nice plumage.

  7. Lovely series of photos, Roy, so crisp and clear. Not much left in my neck of the woods, unfortunately. And little sign of any winter birds. There has been little opportunity to go off, but am hoping for one or two more forays into nature before I head south for the winter, providing the weather cooperates. I'm a bit of a woos when it comes to being cold! Have a wonderful day.
