Goldeneye

 with hides all closed its not easy to get anywhere near wildfowl locally but managed a moderate shot of this drake Goldeneye yesterday 



Unexpected Crane encounter

 certainly not what I was expecting when I set off on a survey on Friday morning in North Lincs but nice start to the year's selfy list

Roe Deer

 close encounter with some grazing Roe - if you move slowly and keep quiet they are usually pretty approachable




Marsh Harrier in 2021 all about the light

 resolution for the year - less is more - nice light on this passing Marsh Harrier yesterday afternoon against the dark woodland

Shoveler - different takes

 make the most out of any opportunity 





patch Pintail

 Pintail seldom linger on the local pits so this drake has been much appreciated - surely one of the finest of ducks

Hen Harriers not in close up or light

December is not a month with a lot of light and these were generally taken at between 4000 and 10,000 ISO just before dark - I have been trying to illustrate behaviour and habitat but its very much a work in progress
