Just A Few Birds

A walk on a really grey misty horrible morning that turned into light rain halfway around the Parkland. One of those days when you almost wished you hadn't bothered.

This Grey Heron was standing at the edge of a lake looking on into the mist and waiting for the next meal to come along.

This Robin drew my attention to it by landing on flimsy dead foliage nearby.




A female 'Tufti' scampered away over the water into the mist.

  3. Siellä on paljon erilasia ihania lintuja. Meidän on odotettava kevääseen, ennen kuin taas näitä lintuja näkee. Onko siellä ollut pakkasta?
