21.8.16.

Sunday…. Mixed weather conditions today…19ºC.

With the possibility of rain, I decided on a trip to Belvide Reservoir.

It was a really good days birding. Most of the birds I photographed were distant, but still a joy to see these magnificent birds…

The highlight had to be my 1st Midlands Gannet…

There were also a couple of Osprey fly overs (note primary feathers). Just wished they had come nearer…

A couple of Pied Wagtails having a dispute. At 1st I thought the bird on left was a youngster begging for food, till I saw them fight…
