A mute swan was nesting near the track.
|Mute swan - female.|
There were plenty of ducks, waders and marsh birds. The avocets were busy mating!
|Widgeon - Female - with head injury!|
|Pochard - female|
|A gorgeous male pheasant|
Shortly after that I passed a pair of red-legged partridges literally on the side of the road. I stopped and reversed but they had already gone further away. Anyway, this shot is handheld in poor light just before sunset.
