If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Not a great shot due to distance and large crop but unusual to see a Grebe standing.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

Spectacular bird.

Took a little digging.

It's an adult male King Eider.

Learn something new every day.

Thanks, Maureen.

Thank-you!!

I have No idea what bird this is although I suspect it belongs to the Puffin family as it was hanging out with them on the rocks.

Such a beautiful sea-hawk! Love the light and the 'look' given.

It was lovely to watch 3 Long tailed tits collecting feathers for their nests that they were building, 1 managed to find a small bundle of wool that was untangled from a barded wire fence.
