Mainly Birding, but anything I see on my wanderings, sometimes with the Westies
Hello!:) Nice set of images! I didn't doubt it for a moment!!:) I clicked on the images to get a better look though!
They look slightly better when enlarged, lol. thank you Gordon.
Hello, great sighting of the Spoonbill. The birds do not always cooperate when we want to take their photos. Have a happy day!
Thank you Eileen, you too. Take care, Gordon.
Beautiful images you have done.
Hi Bob thank you for looking in. Have a good one Gordon.
From the post title, I thought you were going to say you couldn't walk as far as you used to (but I was projecting my reality>) Beautiful birds, even at a distance.
LOL. Nice one Sallie, thanks for dropping by, Gordon.
Hi Gordon,Unfortunately that is often the case as well.You see a beautiful bird and then it appears to be too far away to make beautiful pictures. Last week I saw a heron who had trouble working in an eel but the pictures were all worthless.You can see well that it's spoons :-)I wish you a very nice weekend.Greetings, Helma
Hello Helma , shame about the Heron/eel pics that would have been great. Take care, Gordon.
I saw one of those from the main hide many, many years ago - they are are lot more widespread these days I think. I winder why??Cheers - Stewart M - Geneva, Switzerland
Hi Stewart, I think its all part of the general movement North, possibly started with the Little Egrets and now others are doing the same, Globle warming ?. All the best Gordon.
Hello, I would love to see these White Spoonbills. Awesome! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend!
Thank you Eileen, although they can't compare with the Roseate I' ve seen in Florida. Thanks again, Gordon.
Hi Gordon. A trip to Leighton can be very frustrating when everything is far from the hides. I find that for a very large bird the Spoonbill is very shy. Hope to find one soon at Conder Green!
I think its only a matter of time Phil,you are already getting two types of Egret.
Nice shots of variety of birds.
I am always amazed by Spoonbills! So unusual looking
You are certainly right about that. Have a good week ahead, Gordon.
A big thank you to everyone for looking in and leaving their comments, much appreciated, Gordon.
