  3. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful set of images of the Moorhen, such a lovely bird to watch especially with the young.
    I posted one the other week, something I have never seen before, one catching and eating fish at Rutland.
    All the best, John

  10. Lovley captures Bob of what can sometimes look like 'just a black bird'. You have photographed in some nice light to show off the plumage details beautifully.

  13. Bob - somehow, the word "common" just gets on my nerves. How can any of God's creations be "common"? Thanks as always for sharing these beautiful shots with us.
