Norfolk - part 2

Here are some of the bird shots from Norfolk,taken mostly in the rain. You can see 3 extra pairs of legs underneath the female Avocet. These Spoonbills were breeding in Norfolk.

  9. Nice ones John!I particularly like the Spoonbills. I'm never comfortable when I see tagged birds, when the tag is as obvious as the one on the goose, but, as you say, the discomfort is almost certainly mine and not theirs!

  10. Love these John! The Spoonbills have bred for the past couple of years at Holkham, I have yet to get out there and see them though!

    Tusen tack för dina härliga ord i min blogg.
    Jag älskar fåglar.
    Strandpiparen tycker jag är sååå gullig.Det ser nästan ut som den har glasögon på sig.Teckningarna runt ögonen.
    Underbara bilder. Jättekul för det är några som jag aldrig har sett.
