Nasty grey wet weekend weather wise, so not ideal for birds photos. And as it was wet, the only option was to go somewhere with sheltered hides, so I visited my local Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve.
I did manage to photograph a male Black-necked Grebe for the first time. Although they are large 50% crops.
The advantage of a reserve like Blashford, where you have several habitats, and importantly several hides, is you move around when the rain eases.
These next two birds were taken from the woodland hide. A nicely posing Woodpecker.
And an inquisitive Robin.
