Out at last

Hi All, I managed to get out at last. This after a week of being busy or bad weather.

This afternoon I headed for Bloors wharf, as this was sheltered from the wind. It was still cold but my timing was out because it clouded over as I arrived.

It was low water which meant no fishermen at my normal spot by the deep channel.  There were load of different bird feeding or cleaning themselves, some even sleeping.

There was one bird that I had not seen before which I think is a Wigeon but I am still not sure.

Walking onto the wharf the first thing I saw:


No need to explain 


Teals


Mallards having a snooze


More Teals


Little Egret
Two of these landed just in font of me but took off as I try to take the shot. This one only few a few yards and stayed for a wash and brush up.



When they are standing still like this they make me think that they are shivering with the cold.


Cormorant
This bird was ducking and diving and I got a few shots on him going under but not worth showing.


Lapwing at the back a Knot at the front


Teal
The best shot of the day I think.

Wigeon
At least that is what I think.

Well it was an interesting afternoon with lots of different types of birds (including the Gulls)

I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking.
