Chilling out on a Sunday morning

2011.09.04

There were several cygnets enjoying a snooze in the sunshine. This one was eyeing me up very carefully!

Some of the Cackling Canada Geese were also feeling chilled out.

A Buzzard came and landed on a nearby dead tree as I sat in the Kingfisher Hide. Sadly the kingfishers were nowhere to be seen!

The Greylag Geese are evidently the resident bullies, trying grab food from visitors before smaller birds get a look in, although this particular one was more interested in sunbathing this morning!

elizzi Geese can be brutal!! Love the buzzard ,I saw one today sitting in a field in the stubble..obviously it had just enjoyed a nice meal. What a great set..the first is my favourite!

djnana I couldn't possible choose a favorite because they're all so wonderful. But I love the soft variations in color for the first one. So perfectly shot.
