With not a lot going on in my usual birding places, I popped over to Redesmere once again. Only things on note really were a couple of Goosander at the far side. They were too far away for my lens, but they are a lovely bird to see.
I made do with some birds that came closer to me.

Fantastic photography of beautiful wildlife ~ Love the close up of the 'Tufted Duck' ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^ReplyDelete
Cute shots of the ducks and coot! Thanks for sharing, have a great day!ReplyDelete
Wonderful captures Adam. Thanks for sharing - especially like the mallard stretching!ReplyDelete
The Coot capture is cute! I like its yellow eyes.ReplyDelete
All lovely pictures...the one of the mallard is really special.ReplyDelete
Wow, I wouldn't consider this "making do"--these are beauties. Great shots!ReplyDelete
Tufted duck is one of my favourite birds. I meant to ask earlier, is that your fabulous Whooper Swan picture on the RSPB Burton Mere facebook page?ReplyDelete
Thanks Heather. Yes it is my picture. I was very fortunate that it came and flew right in front of the hide at Inner Marsh Farm, just as I was packing up for the day too.Delete
Beautiful captures! I LOVE that you caught the water droplets too :)ReplyDelete
Wonderful series Adam!ReplyDelete
The Tufted Duck with his yellow eye is my fave - nice portrait of it!
Great photos. I like the drops of water on the duck!ReplyDelete
I love Coots ... they are so funny to watch and cute like little wind up toys. But, your Tufted Duck is amazing ... I love the intensity of the eyes. I don't think I have seen one before, so this was a real treat. Thanks for your "make do" photos. I wish I could make do so well ... :)ReplyDelete

Like them all Adam, but that second one of the Tufted Duck, really is swell~ReplyDelete
Nice picture - sometimes a study in slate grey is all you need. Its been a winter or two since I last saw a Tufftie!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking to WBW. I was in Oman all last week, hence the slow reply!
