|...those tail feathers are put to very good use|
|...another 'Swift' morning.|
However, early afternoon it was reported on the North Wall viewable from the sluice. So, armed with camera, I arrived at the Salt House and there, in the middle of the harbour a pin prick of a sleeping creamy white bird which, with bins was the Spoonbill. Photographable?...well no!
.... here's the proof!
|700mm and a massive crop!|
A Shelduck with four youngsters the other side of the pool...
and then I was reduced to Magpies!
...but hang on, if these were rare we would be bowled over by their plumage...just look at these tail colours and the general 'exotic' look of the bird.! Enjoy Magpies!
