Whilst re-stocking the bird seed over at the Greenhouse Grounds this morning, I received a call from a friend to ask if I wanted to join him on a trip to Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve, which I accepted readily :-)
We reached the reserve around 09:30hrs and stayed until around 13:00hrs, where in the lovely winter sunshine I spent some time photographing the various wildfowl, nothing out of the ordinary was seen, but it made a nice refreshing change to get off my patch and try some different photography :-)
A view over one of the large lakes at the reserve
The same view again but zoomed in closer.
Tufted Ducks were plentiful, it was nice to get a chance to photograph a splendid drake bird,, they are a rarity on my patch
As is the Coot!
Black Headed Gulls were common, as they are on my patch at this time of year, but I can get to photograph them at the reserve ;-)
I watched this Great Crested Grebe fishing, but didn't see it catch anything
Canada Geese, a species not yet seen on my patch this month.
I took a few other images, which i'll post on another day. :-)
