Whooper Swan at Drift Reservoir

Spend an hour or two at drift this afternoon. Whooper Swan and Barnacle Geese Still there, the later to far away for photo's. Despite the distant Geese the Whooper Swan was showing very very well, a lot better than last year when it was in the field to the left of the hide. I also visited Marazion and Brew Farm today, Images from there will appear tomorrow.
Might buy a Macro lens and go back down there ;-)

Coming in the next few days, Tufted duck at Drift, Record shot of bittern at Marazion, Cattle Egret's at Sennen and hopefully some good images from the CWT Field trip to St.Ives


  1. Thank you, hope you had a great time at Slimbridge Angie

  2. Great shots Ash, how close were you??

  3. Hitting min focus point on quite a few shots (3.5mts), could have been even closer!!!!
    Well worth going

  4. Take some bread!! Lovely photos Ash. I especially like the one with the bill open showng the serated edges. They look really good on the CB Website, don't you think?

  5. yeah nice layout.

    The tufties were also very close. See recent "Favourite image", more to post tomorrow.
