I'll start with a bird that's caused a bit of excitement where I live.
A juvenile Great Northern Diver; or Loon, as they are known over the pond. A fabulous bird, that has been here at my local lake for a week now. Usually seen around our coast at this time of year, and very occasionally inland. A great visitor, and a lifer for me.
Another great 'fisher', and a bit more common, is the Grey Heron.
Always good to see this large bird, but not always easy to capture with the camera.
He thought I couldn't see him here.
The Cormorant is another fish eating bird, that a lot of fishermen could do without, at their fishing grounds.
Probably because they can catch fish better than them.
The Black-headed Gull, will also eat fish.
In fact, he'll eat almost anything. A real chancer. When people throw bread for the ducks, chances are, they'll be there too; trying to steal it from the Mallards.
I'll finish with a pair of birds that were so common at one time, people wouldn't give them a second glance.
Now, however, in this country they are in serious decline, despite their inroads into most countries of the world.
Passer domesticus, or the House Sparrow.
