Fluff & feathers

Paid a visit to Killingworth Lake on the way back from a meeting where things were looking good.

A new brood of 11 Tufted Ducks was leading mum a merry dance around the reed island.

Whilst a Pochard basked in the (occasional) sun.

It's easier to take pictures of birds when they give signal of their intended manoeuvre.

This juvenile Great Crested Grebe was spending a lot ot time preening and the results were beginning to show through.


  1. I'm confused Peter,
    That signal, is it a right turn or overtaking??

  2. Thinking nautically I believe it's ready to go about.
