First visit to Walmsley

Well this was my first visit to Walmsly today. Nothing unusual on offer and hardly anything flying. So images of the Canada's squabbling and a couple of Egrets.  I have to say though the hide is fantastic, a great platform for bird photography/watching. I will be visiting again soon. Then went onto Marazion but again awfully quiet.  Weather is due to change soon hopefullly this will bring in some migrants and get the residents birds in action again, it is almost as if nothing flies in cold easterly winds?? On a brighter note though I did spot eleven Dodo's playing for Liverpool on Monday and Thursday this week. Onto todays pictures :

Canada Goose bathing: I thought this looked better in black and white.

Canada Goose on the Charge: Made this one large best viewed when double clicked.

Little Egret: with the cold wind ruffling his feathers.

Walmsley is a great place, the best bird I have had there is a Pectoral Sandpiper. Also a great place for wintering duck. you generally see the all the Raptors there.
