Thanks Lis, I'm currently trying to improve my bird photography especially birds in flight - seems to be working I think.

I'm still trying to get a LTWB that I'm happy with, it seems to me that they always fly away from me.

At Otter Dam, the resident Little Egret was present.

I have no idea what is happening here.

Another Reed Cormorant.

And a Yellowbilled Duck taking a bath.

Then it was on to the Island View Hide.......
