20th February 2017 – Chew Valley Lake

With low cloud and drizzle at Chew Valley Lake this morning it was much more enjoyable in Stratford hide with 5 Common Snipe and 2 Jack Snipe (amazingly camouflaged) as well as Scaup and Tufted Duck out on the lake.

At Herriot’s the best was a Great Crested Grebe, 2 Pochard and a strange hybrid duck that clearly thought it was a Mallard from the company it kept.

Swans were showing off and chasing each other.

In fact lots of birds were getting stroppy.

The light was poor but I enjoyed the challenge of trying to photograph birds (mainly gulls)  in flight.
