Sparrow

At the moment, there are lots of Sparrows in the garden, almost as many as the Goldfinches. Next door to us has a long established hedge and they are nesting there and feeding in our garden. Great to watch.

A lovely photo of a male Mallard Duck on the lake at Rochford. This was taken early evening but unlike the earlier photo of the Canada Goose, there is no sunset reflected on the water.

Canada Goose at Sunset


I saw this Canada Goose swimming in a reflected sunset at Doggets Farm, Rochford, Essex yesterday and just had to photograph it. The scene was so idyllic.
