A pair(?) of Mute Swans dwarf a Black-headed Gull (Shoveler in the left background).
Territorial dispute amongst the Mute Swans (more Shoveler in the background).
A great view of a duck Teal in its stunning breeding plumage.
You have to look closely to realise there are only 4 drake and 2 duck Teal here.
These two drake Shoveler seem to be talking (or sticking their tongues out).
Fine reflection here: this drake Shoveler looks rather aggressively surprised.
We’d better keep the sexual balance and show a duck Shoveler as well.
This drake Shoveler still aspiring to acquire breeding plumage.
And if the light is right the drakes head really glosses in the sun.
I find flying Lapwing very hard to capture: this is one of my better efforts.
Excellent angle to capture some of the intricate plumage.
On this bird these feathers are nowhere nearly so prominent.
It really is a long bill! Looks like this bird needs a handkerchief.
Look bill all gone! They can open the end of the bill while it is buried in soft ground to grab morsels.
Another view of that intricate plumage.
A gang. Note that in detail the plumage of these birds is somewhat different.
Here is one doing its commute.
With another landing back.
Must be Spring! A Blue Tit amongst the Blackthorn blossom.
A handsome species.
This female Chaffinch is perched on one leg for some reason.
This female is on both feet on the same perch: not this same bird I think.
A male Chaffinch perches on both legs.
Makes my neck ache to look at it.
