Wet Weekend Birds

Great Spotted Woodpecker

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.
