Early September Birds

Green Woodpecker on Post

Early September is a fairly quiet time for photographing birds, as many of the migrants have left, and we await the winter migrants arrival.  Still it was worth a venture out to Blashford Lakes again, though I did not see the reported Little Stint or Osprey, these three all year round residents of the reserve were worth watching and photographing.

First a Great Crested Grebe.

And from the same hide, but a different window, a Wood Pigeon.

Finally from the Lapwing Hide, a Green Woodpecker posed obligingly on a post.
