This reserve is proving to be one of the better ones for bird photgraphy, now that the water levels have stabilised so it was worth a trip back there earlier this month (8th April) to check it out.

First from the 360 hide where several Snipe were feeding.

and a shot to show the near perfect camouflage of resting Snipe.

A drake Shelduck looked respemdent in the morning sun

as was a Lapwing feeding right outside the hide.

Moving round to the East Hide, very little of real interest so it was down to making the best of what was there. Canada Geese very close

There was still large flocks of Brent Geese around which I foiund surprising as I would have thought that they would have already migrated back to the continent for breeding.

With little else, back to the 360 hide where some recently ploughed land next to the hide attracted a Pied Wagtail

and a Skylark

On the island, some very noisy black-headed Gulls were parading and mating.

and fighting for the right to mate.

Relocating the car to the small car park near ther sea wall, a Ruff showed well.

and the pick of the day, although against the late afternoon sun, a Spotted Redshank.

A quick run (or hobble in my case) back to the car to avoid a heavy hailstorm, it was time to return home. When there is not much of real interest, it can be quite challenging to get photos worth keeping. Out of total of 1800 taken on the day, only 28 were really worth the effort but that's wildlife photography.
