I decided to take the camera for a try out at Barnes. I mentioned this on messenger to Tricia and we agree to meet up.
The weather was lurvely but the birds were conspicuous by there not being that many !! Lots of Sand Martins, some Common Terns, Green Woody, Warblers calling, Redshank and an unknown raptor which I had a 2 second glance of.
Still some photos....
Lots of young coots
This young heron was playing hard to get stuck in the reeds!
but this one....
I do like male Tufties
Black Tailed Skimmer
Young Coot having a splash
This coot kept going back to the nest.
Adult Blue Tit, bit scruffy!!
Young blue tit through glass
And just as we were about to leave we got word that 4 Black Tailed Godwit had dropped in. A bit distant but a record shot.
Pleasant day in good company.
