The Lake District

Red Breasted Merganser

Great Crested Grebe




Black Headed Gull




A few days away in the Lake District with the family gave me my first ever wild Otter (mega) which was hunting in the small lake behind our cottage, very distant but fantastic to watch. I did a tour of the lakes but the most bird life seemed to be on Coniston, Rydal and Grasmere.
Goldeneye's seemed to be on most of the lakes, only saw Red Breasted Merg's on Coniston and Goosander on Grasmere, plenty of Little and Great Crested Grebes every where but nothing special. Unfortunately at this time of the year in the Lake District the light conditions were extremely poor (you can't have everything).
