It was a showery day and only the three had to "weather the storm". Well, there were others.

Little Grebe (Forest of Dean)

Pictures of the Little Grebe, I love them. Their summer isn't long enough, and they have to discard their summer plumage. Well, this is spring, so let's be happy.

Common Tern at Lydney boating lake

Once every year do the Common Tern pay us a visit, it lasts for 2 weeks. Fortunately it was that time, and fish is what they want. This fellow had eaten too much, probably bigger that its stomach.

Common Sandpiper at Mallards Pike (FOD)

You know how it feels, all senses are numbed, and if you wanted to move, but it will fly away. And it didn't, there was about two or three minutes, and then came two people and it flew away. I can't blame them, they were around when I got my buggy stuck, and gave me a shove.

Reed Buntings.

Beautiful birds.
A question: If you didn't have to, would you take an aeroplane, knowing that a volcano had erupted spilling ash? ---I know I wouldn't.

She looks like another bird, Swan possibly, grabbed her by the head-the mark on both sides.
She is quite beautiful.
And him, he is beeaaaauutiful as well.
This is a photo of his hair, it is grand. Yet, he is looking out for her, made a mistake the last time.
