There were some long sunny periods this morning and as I need to undertake only one more full patch walk for the year, which I have booked in for the 31st, rather than visit my patch, I made a visit to Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve.

I took my camera out and instead of counting species and bird abundance, I just enjoyed what was there, snapping away at the Geese mostly, and a frustratingly distant Kingfisher !

Anyway here's a load of images from today  :-)


Egyptian Goose, touching down


Egyptian Goose safely down  :-)


Canad Goose





Greylag Goose, preening away.


Coot



Tufted Duck


Lastly, the distant Kingfisher, I wasn't going to post it, but I reckon the image has some merit!

Beautiful images from start to finish - and not just because of the sunshine, either! The kingfisher is a little jewel. Glad you took time out to just enjoy what nature had on offer.
