A few recent birds

First one is from my local lake. He seems to have a strange look in his eye.

Grey Heron

Next few are from a visit to Wicken Fen, with Trevor, a few days ago.

Little Grebe


Moorhen taking a bath

Some very young Swallow chicks. The nest was in a bird hide, and the pair of adults didn't seem at all bothered by people in the hide. A nesting pair are here every year.

and finally

Male House Sparrow feeding a youngster.

Enjoy your day
