Yesterday I was in London with Jack Perks, a fellow wildlife photographer, when we came across this mandarin duck and her ducklings next to Regents canal. I got the wide angle out for a few shots too. In Regents Park we came across this Egyptian goose. And this wood pigeon.
One bird their was plenty of at Filey Brigg was oystercatchers. There was a lot of feeding going on, as the tide was dropping and revealing the mussel beds. One couldn’t wait for the tide to drop completelyd and braved the waves for lunch! One bonus was this eider, it was nice to see one…
On a trip to Richmond Park in october I got my best shots of the species yet. I got a number of the males. And some of the females.
On a quick walk this morning, the first one with sun for a while, I spotted this mallard on a pond. I rather liked the reflection. Another nice surprise was a few redpolls, something I had never seen in the park.
Back in March I popped into Seahouses on the way back from Scotland, to photograph the resident eiders there and got my best shots yet of this species. A male posed nicely in the harbour. And a group came close outside the harbour wall. The female posed nicely too.
