A small selection from some recent excursions to my local lake, Caldecotte.
We’ve had a lot of dull days, and plenty of snow, but occasionally a sunrise on a cold winters day, is just too good not to share.
The morning after Christmas Day; and a great day it turned out to be.
A female Goldeneye, enjoying some much needed sun.
A female Goosander, with her beautiful red head, just behind a dozing male Tufted Duck.
Some wonderfully noisy Canada Geese, as they flew by.
And in contrast, a silent male Mallard.
And Christmas Day, proved just as good, with the sun shining later in the morning.
Two beautiful Siskin stopped feeding long enough for a portrait, against a rare blue sky,
and a Robin, fluffed himself up against the cold, and posed for his portrait.
Aren’t birds just beautiful?
