An Afternoon Walk at Radipole

With a pleasant sunny afternoon happening, another brief interlude from new home preparations was in order.
So a walk around Radipole Lake seemed like a good idea.

The star of the day was this Shelduck that was observed feeding on a patch of water.



Along several of the waterways there were small groups of Teal Duck.




This female Reed Bunting below was not an easy target, but the images were good enough to show.



I also found a pair of Stonechat that moved about some distant reeds. 
They came into clear view on a few occasions.





This is a favourite spot for the Grey Heron.


Male House Sparrows


Spot the Marsh Harrier
This male was a long way away from my position and these are heavily cropped shots.




It was all too soon that the sun soon moved low in the sky and it was only minutes away from setting when I left.
