Xmas from Maza and the Daily Bittern is a Stunner.

Celebrate Xmas down the pub or take the camera out on the best day we have had in ages. I chose the latter. After a very disappointing and unproductive morning I was wishing I had gone down the pub etc. Perseverance paid off later with a couple of stunning images. A few photographers out with there camera's so I wasn't the only one to take advantage of the good light today. Enjoy the images:

Chiff Chaff, close view for a change.

This was a skirmish over a sunbathing spot.

Hiding amongst the reeds, hoping for an ambush.


Chilling out a the back of the marsh

Song Thrush, just had his lunch.

Heron, just before the light went.

Thanks John and Sue, Keith we are fortunate to have about six bittern here, but still lots of patience, time etc is required to get the pictures.

Hi Bob,decided to come back for a second look.
Your patience has really paid off,your last image is stunning,people over look Grey Herons.
But not you,thank heavens.
Happy New Year.
