Wow, that's a wonderful series of shots and what variety! The last shot is pure magic. The rays, the clouds and oh so many birds. Great composition! The wood duck, moorhen and the 1st two are just fabulous. Excellent!

Excellent captures. The individual birds are sharp with great detail and the last is very nicely composed. Well done.


Best regards - Reyno

Hi - nice shots but just to let you know that your Pink-footed Goose is actually a Greylag and your Common Sandpiper is a Ruff

Thanks for that, I have trouble differentiating greylags and pinkfoots so I went with the highest probability, this area has huge numbers of pinkfoots around (the farmers fields are full of 'em during the day), and they mostly roost at Martin Mere or Marshside, which is just up the road. As for the ruff, I'll blame that on Damian (dewmuw) 'coz he told me it was a common sandpiper ;)

Many thanks too, to all the other people who have commented on this thread. All the comments are gratefully received, I'm particularly gratified at the response to the final image as that took a bit of work to do. It's two images taken of the same scene, one exposed for the sky, the other for the mere, then combined and a touch of colour added to the sky and the water. The others are all straight shots with just a tweak to levels and contrast.
