Lodmoor Visit

My images from a recent visit to Lodmoor Reserve, Weymouth.

Things are beginning to improve at Lodmoor in respect of bird life. The first of the winter gatherings are now happening.
Canada Geese have returned in some numbers along with Black-tailed Godwits. 
Regular attenders such as the Great White and Little Egrets are also visible.

From a distance I witnessed this Great White homing in on a fish of some kind.

  1. Wow! to those photos of the Great White fishing.
    Many (nearly 50) years go I lived in Weymouth in a road backing onto Lodmoor. If my memory serves, it was council tip then. something of an improvement!

    1. Thanks Jacquie,
      Yes the Council Tip is the other side of the road to it.
      I don't know the full history of it.

  3. Great shots Roy. The series of images of the Great White Egret are FABULOUS. Just learned that we have 2 GW Egret in Northern Ireland but not in my area. Have a lovely weekend.
