Shore lark

With just a hint of summer plumage starting to show through on its face I think this is a great winter visitor and it is a shame that they do not remain for the year.


These are such obliging birds I cannot turn down a opportunity to grab a picture.........

Snow buntings

A trip to Salthouse in winter rarely disappoints and the buntings were very confiding.

Water pipit

This is the only decent image I got on a cold and heavily overcast day at Titchwell, a good day was had on the birding front though with good views of many species from the new hides.

Another trip to the new Letchworth cemetery came up trumps again when I found some redwings bathing in some puddles later joined by a corn bunting.

Great crested grebe

Priory country park, Bedford provided the setting for this pair of courting grebes, the top picture was of a threat pose when an interloper showed up


I got these pictures at the new cemetery in Letchworth, I had a forty minute wait before they plucked up their courage to walk near the car and eventually this one posed for me beautifully.
