The Goosander hide has been attracting people from far and wide recently, especially photographers in search of that illusive kingfisher shot. However, as is often the way, the kingfisher does not always play along, luckily it is not only a place to get kingfisher shots and we have been send a selection of great images taken from there recently by Mark Wright, here are a few of them.
There have been lots of herons around recently and they do not always get on well.
Of course not all herons are grey.
Since my observation of Walter taking a fish from in front of a cormorant he seems to have developed a limp, it could be the cormorant had a go at him as they can be quite aggressive. Hopefully he will recover soon and continue on.
Not all the birds are large, there have been a number of grey wagtail close to the hide recently.
And not all the wildlife there is birds.
Then of course there are always the occasional opportunities to get shots of kingfisher as well.
Many thanks to Mark for sending us such a great series of shots.
