Grebe antics.

On a filthy morning at Killingworth my spirits suddenly soared.


................and 3 Sand Martins hawked the larger lake at 8.41 a.m.


  1. Nicely caught image of the GCGs.
    Hopefully we'll have a nice bright evening soon and the lake will be covered by Sand Martins.
    Quite atmospheric and quiet at the Rising Sun CP this morning as well.

  2. As it happens it was around the time I saw the Sand Martins but wasn't sure (well about 99.9%) that they were and was trying to get an image through the mist. Also 4 Oystercatchers sailed over piping as they approached, I wanted to capture them as well. Like number 49 buses Brian. It quietened down shortly after. 6 Goosanders (2M, 4F) were interacting as I was leaving, couldn't wait about, sadly. No Scaup.

  3. It isn't, its OK. Light was lousy ISO 2500 !!! Lightroom did the job.
