Breech Pool

A brief early morning visit  to Breech Pool to see if anything interesting had turned up resulted in little excitement but as always there is usually plenty to see and enjoy!

Mute Swan flypast...anything but mute in flight!
Reed Warblers were again much in evidence and a Cettis called from the sluice gate area but as usual kept well hidden.

Black Tailed Godwits

Black Tailed Godwits were enjoying the shallow water of the pool ....but the star of the show had to be a single Ruff feeding alongside but frequently preening. (See Flickr)

It was a pleasant hour simply enjoying the peace and quiet and trying to capture a few images of the varying bird life!

Here are couple of shots of the ever present Egrets... in typical hunched poe

...and another in 'take off' position!!
