|This slendid drake Wigeon showed well in the sunshine|
As I reached the Salthouse a Kingfisher zoomed past but little else of interest until I met Jim Western
who led me to a Little Owl viewable across the field by the parked cars...too distant for a decent shot...a pity as it was showing really well in the sunshine...
|Little Owl....(record shot!)|
I did however meet Arthur for the first time (Artisanart on Flickr) and together we enjoyed a pair of Red Breasted Mergansers in 'battle' mood which gave us both an opportunity for some action shots!
