Holt - Smew take 2

What a difference a bit of sunshine makes!! Arriving mid-morning with Dave Chapman once more, the two Smew were still on the fishing pool, south of the road to the church and with a few fishermen (including one with a tannoy system?) restricting their range. Nevertheless, this meant they were a bit closer than yesterday and for once, I couldn't grumble about the light! From 100's of images (far too many), here's a sampler...








Homing in on individuals...




Drifting ever closer!






Time for a quick wash!




And wing flap...


Then concentrating on cleaning up on the small Perch population!






Both days gave two or three opportunities for flight shots as they relocated around the pool. Flying incredibly fast and with trees always getting in the way -  I failed miserably on the Friday but made up for it today (coming next)...
