After the thaw

Last night most of the snow melted or was washed away, a trip to to the moorlands last Sunday didn't bring a lot of success, so a trip today was called for.
After a 1/2 hour wander and a bit of waiting look what arrived.

I get the feeling that Mr Seal may know where this bird is, due to the fact that he may have some pictures of the same bird.  Only guessing !!!
You should really follow this link to see the photo's Tracey got of the same bird.

Yesterday I took a trip down to Westport lake and had not a bad hour or so.

Last day before work..1st day of 2013

Work in the morning!
After the last few days weather, had to get out today, as it turns out the weather was good, so 8.30 at Tunstall Prk no Goosanders  but the Little Grebes are out for a play.
Gave it an hour or so then wandered down to Westport.
Scaup still on the water but nowhere I could get a decent picture, 2 Goldeneye and 6 Pochard in with the Tufted Ducks, took a few images then left and called in at Tunstall on the way back home, still no Goosander.

Yes the last image is in fact 3 images, the wonders of Photoshop !!!!
