I had a great morning out at the RSPB reserve at Rainham Marshes. This is the first time I have visited there and was really impressed. The weather was lousy for photography with it being misty and grey, but I did get some photos. I watched a Kestrel hunting and watched for his favourite spots. One spot was right by a footpath, so I walked to near that spot and waited and was rewarded with a great display of him flying and hunting quite close to me. Not the best photos, but I am quite pleased with them considering the circumstances.
A flock of Pochard ducks landing on the lake at the RSPB Canvey West Marsh reserve with a Shoveler duck on the bank. It was very cold and windy on this day, but it was great to see the ducks around the lake. there were several different flocks there.
Something more ‘Arty’ tonight. A Carrion Crow hovering among the top branches of some bushes. Taken at the RSPB reserve at Canvey West Marshes.
This Crow just popped up in front of me while I was at the RSPB Canvey Island West Marshes reserve. Luckily he stayed around long enough for me to photograph him.
