Bit of an influx of Egyptian Geese today with eight present! Five in one frame was the maximum possible...

An excellent surprise at Venus Pool today with a Jack Snipe present and for once showing well!
Well sort of? A change of hide was indicated...

I literally walked in and out of the hide at Venus Pool after hearing that a Barred Warbler had turned up at Polemere. There was one bird, a Little Grebe, in front of the hide, showing quite well and having a stretch!
I took a quick burst of pics sensing the Barred was not going to show...

North Shropshire and the Meres in particular seem to be popular for Cattle Egrets and a group of TEN were on my radar. My daughter Kate came along too (the family 'bug' for birding seems to have grabbed her!) What a way to tick a new species for her - not just one but an amazing ten were here once more!
They were well spread out and distant - the most I could get in the camera field of view were 5 of them!

After being deluged with sightings of Great White Egret in 2022, I suddenly realised I hadn't seen one in 2023! Time to pay a visit and see about a few pics, while the sun was shining!!
Perched on the middle island seemed to be the limit of its activity!
