Manor Gardens


Water Rail


Carrion Crow

A walk around Manor Gardens, which is proving to be a very good wildlife haven at the moment. A pair of Kingfishers were giving me a fly pass, just could not get them perched together and they were quite distant. It took me quite a while to locate the Water Rail which has taken up residency on the muddy edges of the lake.
It was a very cold and icy morning hence the picture of the Moorhen walking across the ice. Light conditions were all over the place but i was quite happy taking a few snaps of the bird life in the gardens. No sign of the Little Grebe now the lake is covered in ice.
