A “Gulp” of Cormorants and some friendly Swans
Recently l have been trying to photograph a ‘gulp’ (who knew?) of Cormorants who gather on or adjacent to the landing in the local lake. Unfortunately they hear or see me coming and take flight so this afternoon l tried out a new, but cheap, telephoto lens. Only one Cormorant and a rather sad and cold looking Heron were there but before l could adjust the focus they too took flight. Happily the lake Swan family took pity and did a rather elegant paddle by which cheered me up immenseley. 😊

Our Little Owl
For the past few years this little owl has frequented our garden on most summer evenings and less frequently in Autumn and Spring. It has become increasingly friendly and perches nearer and nearer to the house. Although always on the look-out for tasty morsels in the adjacent field or our garden she always takes time to chat with Madame Redstuff who, not normally a lover of animals, has become very fond of our feathered friend.
