    Oh dear, and my partner just said to me today 'we must get to Slimbridge soon'. They'll need to frisk me before I come home..........;)
    Have you seen the crane chicks yet?

    Today was my first visit for a couple of weeks after having a repair done on my retina at the BEH ... I was hoping to get the first sighting of them today but overnight the parents took the chicks into high vegetation at the side of the water so all I got was a glimpse of an adult's head! :(

    That first is amazing Roger, almost 3D
    When I first saw it it thought it was swimming out the screen, I had to come back for a second look, just to check it hadn't :D

    Thanks Chris, they are fluffy little things aren't they, seem to skim across the water and I love to see them diving :)

    Love the first image, the water droplets add so much to it, and its tack sharp too.

    Agree, the first is a little special (y) ......:thinking:.....maybe a bit of anti-clockwise rotation to straighten??

    Thanks chaps, not sure on the rotation Phil, the bow wave maybe creates an illusion?

    Hope all's ok now with the retina. Makes me shudder thinking about a eye op. Been away myself..Cornwall.


    Really good close-ups. Nothing to choose between them,both cuties. They're probably safer there at Slimbridge than out in the countryside lakes/ponds where there are pike and gulls. I assume there are no pike at Slimbridge.

    Thanks John, eye is improving each day :)
    No pike at Slimbridge (there are some huge Chubb!) but the Lesser Black-backed Gulls are keeping the adults on their toes!

    Lol..Dear me. Certainly giving that gull what for.Well caught...:D

    I thought of going today but being out in 32C didn't appeal. Might pop over at 0930 tomorrow before the heat hits. As you know, Roger, you can go in earlier but only to Rushy side. 30 minutes ago we had 7 mallards on the pond, all males bar one, a very dark female that I haven't seen before.
