A few favourite images from Welney on Friday as swans fly in onto the ice at Welney prior to finding open water to roost for the night. Good to pick out one Bewick among the Whoopers and with a radio collar - see BBC article

After a foggy start, the sun made it out with clear skies for an hour or so before it clouded over again at sunset. Spent some time taking slow shutterspeed images -from 1/30th to 1/125th second. Love the way the primaries of the swans record in a blur of motion.

Eleven Members of CCC visited Welney yesterday - the morning was misty with lots of opportunities for atmospheric shots of swans (to follow). In the afternoon, the sun broke through and gave us good views from the Lyle Hide of Redshank, Teal, Wigeon, Stonechat, Lapwing, Pied Wagtail and Snipe, all attempting to find food among the ice.

The snowdrops at Anglesey Abbey are certainly behind last year but probably more 'normal' with some out in the sheltered spots but still to open in the exposed areas. Lovely misty conditions yesterday gave colourings that display the gardens so well for me. More details of the snowdrop festival at this link for Anglesey Abbey

We visited Welney last week on a chilly but bright sunny morning though the horizons were misty with more delicate colours. Don't remember a moon but not sure what else produced the effect! The Ouse Washes were fairly flooded and some of it frozen which gave some great landings (most missed in the camera!)
