I can't see the original sticky so will start a new thread.  Saw nearly 30,000 knot on Breydon Water yesterday.  Great weekend at Minsmere, Otter, Kingfishers, Bitterns, lots of Marsh Harriers

Not quite in keeping with the original post, but had a lovely day at Slimbridge, and was pleased to see Bewick Swans flying in late in the day for feeding time.Plus the water looked like molten mercury around the site. Hope it shows in the pics. Nice to have this new addition to the site.

Thanks Pliers. Just noticed that if you click on the picture, you get a slight enlargement. Then you can also enlarge them.

Nice pics BlueM, I didn't quite increase the size of mine enough, so it's worth experimenting as they certainly enhance this thread.

Oneput advised me previously to make the width 430 to upload into photobucket under the previous method, which is where I started and found anything between 460 and 600, depanding on original file size gets you near the 500kb max.

Much easier to load now for all and looking forward to seing more from Oneput and Tirrel, if his previous post is a taste of his pics.

Nothing really spectacular, but as we were walking alongside the R.Dee to day we spotted a cormorant struggling to consume an eel. However it soon gulped it down when another came to rob it  prize. Then we saw a Kingfisher flying alongside a rowing quad, and a Buzzard being chased off it's perch by a pair of Magpies.

Tonight we heard a Thrush singing from a roof somewhere in one of the narrow alley ways in our small town.  The sound was just magical - and made us both quite emotional - especially on a dark evening when you just don't expect it!

I have the pleasure of a regular wake up call from our resident Song Thrush and it ALWAYS brings a smile to my face, even in Summer when it's usually about 4.00 a.m.
