2nd September 2019 – Stoke Park Estate, Bristol

Only chance for a short walk around Stoke Park Estate this afternoon as I spent the morning playing golf. I probably saw more birds on the golf course than in the park but I managed a few photos and hence my blog.

The juvenile green woodpecker was particularly difficult to photograph as it was continuously in the shade and its colours are not as vivid as the adults.

The grey heron moved often around the pond and so I had a few chances of photographing it in flight.

The juvenile coots were very noisy.
