Three hours at Brandon

3rd March 2012

 

While Kay headed straight for the cafe I took a brief walk round Brandon , and then with a few hours of light left I settled in the John Baldwin hide, to see if I could photograph the Great Crested Grebes . 

The Grebes stayed out of range but the male Goldeneye was less shy once the hide became less crowded .

Annoyingly however he did little but swim and dive, theres only so many portraits you can take.

Then just as the light was fading , he decided to rear up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also present  at the hide were , Tufted Duck , Pochard, Teal , Mallard, and a blue streak  ( Brandon Kingfisher flyby :0)  )

Faye + Richie-250

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also providing some entertainment the local Cormorants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The female Goldeneye also made a brief appearance

 

 

A brief visit too Brandon , but as always something of interest , three hours well spent

Well done on another interesting and photo filled blog Andy. I can't imagine that any time spent at Brandon would result in leaving with nothing as there is so much to see and enjoy and always seems to be birds out on the water. Your Goldeneye shots in particular are great and it's lovely to see the female too. I'm glad to hear you've had a good day and hope tomorrow is a good one too :)
