Hanningfield Reservoir

I just couldn't drag myself out of bed this morning!!

I ended up at Hanningfield Reservoir an Essex Wildlife Trust reserve.

I stopped on the causeway. The usual collection of ducks and gulls. The ducks included Ruddies!!

My eye though soon turned to this pair of hooligans!

There was a big flock of Long Tails in the car park.

Blue & Great Tits in the woods. And I found a Great Spotted Woodpecker.

In the meadow was a group of Greylags. Someone reported a White Front but I never saw it. Then again it could have flown before I got there!

This little chap was hiding!

More ducks!

The view from point hide. It was very windy!!

A few female goldenye and I "found" a male.

Lots of Pied Wags on the shore front as well as Chaffinches and Starlings.

This little chap was VERY obliging.

first robin is very sharp, great shot! Others could be nice, but a little soft, wonder if you was zoomed right out? Still seeing improvements everytime you are out with the new camera.

Maybe if you dressed in full camo, get down on your tummy and stalked them ?!?!? ;)
