Spring Is In The Air

A trip to Walmsley today in bright sunshine. My aim was to photograph the three Spoonbill and Tundra Peregrine, no luck with the peregrine and only just managed a flight shot of the Spoonbill. Plenty of Reed Bunting around and we had a reasonable views of the Pink Foot geese and the Tundra Bean Goose, we also viewed a Green Sandpiper, Black tail Godwit along with the Pochard, Gadwell, Shoveler Duck, Bullfinch etc. I had a great day with good company, namely Adrian Davey, a highly experienced wildlife photographer and known as the Andy Rouse of Launceston (lanson) have a look at his web site .
