28th November 2019 – Eastville Park, Bristol

I set off on my walk around Eastville Park this morning full of optimism as the sun was shining and I was confident of taking some reasonable photographs. I wasn’t really disappointed in the end as there was lots to photograph but I hadn’t counted on the lake  still being in the shade: just a bit more editing to do.

I saw a kingfisher in three different places but I think it was always the same female.  There was lots of activity from seven cormorants (four of whom I saw fishing on the lake) and there was a female goosander and three grey herons. There must be a huge stock of fish.

The tawny owl could be seen clearly (at least she was in the sun). I tried photographing the black-headed gulls in flight but there really wasn’t enough light. Good fun trying though. It was the same thing with a crow bathing in the River Frome.

The best thing about it being a sunny day was there were lots of people about, many of them stopped to talk, and they all had a smile on their face.
