How close can you get? Canada Goose of course.
Always a favourite, especially when lit like this. A drake Gadwall.
And his intended: I know the flanks look blurred, but they only look blurred.
One of the 12 Curlews present today (Wigeon asleep in the foreground).
And a trio of Curlews (at least one of the drake Wigeon is awake now).
A rather scruffy Blue Tit. Note the long toes.
A female Chaffinch eating a seed. Her colouration is quite subtle.
Compare and contrast: female in front of the male.
And compare and contrast those rear views, female in front.
Male and female Brambling and male and female Chaffinch.
Naughty male Bullfinch – eating the buds of the Blackthorn.
A Red-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus lapdarius).
This looks to me like a Honey Bee sp. (but I do not have any detailed literature on this group).
Not sure about this little critter: it almost looks wasp-waisted but is hairy like a bee.
