26th November 2018 – Eastville Park

It’s been another glorious day and really quite warm for November. Following a morning’s game of golf at The Kendleshire Golf Club just north of Bristol, where I saw a grey heron and 2 cormorants, I decided it was too nice to stay in this afternoon so I had a walk around the local park.

Still some colour in some of the trees
The reflections show how still a morning it was.

In Eastville Park I saw 2 grey herons, 5 cormorants, a tawny owl, 2 kingfishers, a wren and a grey wagtail.

This grey heron was disturbed by the one above and moved on to the River Frome
The tawny owl was very reluctant to show his face.
The cormorants have a spooky look about them
The wren looks really tiny on the weir
The grey wagtail was difficult to photograph as it never seems to stop still for a moment and the light was not good.
The kingfisher was also very busy around the park 
With long lenses the kingfisher often seems quite big in my photos: here it can be seen with its reflection in the water.
