February begins



A low key start to February in Onuma...................





This pair of White Tailed Eagles was taken with the 2X teleconveter. You can easily see how the female is bigger than the male..................

The wintering Bean Goose was still around...............ignoring the shennanigens (sp?) of the Mallards.............


It must be a bit lonely..............






In among the wildfowl flock were 5 Smew, some Goosander...................and one Goldeneye.


And a few Pintail....................



Also round at Onuma were Crossbill, Kingfisher, Black Woodpecker and the usual common stuff..............

  2. Super pics. Amazing to get so close to the Bean Goose. Lots of birds to keep you going so I reckon it's a good start to the month.

    1. 'Yellow Footed Goose' sounds better than Bean Goose.
