Red-necked Phalarope

A few record shots of the Red-necked Phalarope from Druridge Pools. It was always distant but was great to watch.



It followed the Shovelers around picking up titbits that they had disturber



Occasionally the Shovelers got a bit fed up with it following them around and would chase it off

Tourist Eagles

Just finished going through the pictures I took last week in Scotland. We were staying in one of our favourite cottages Lettoch Beag near Killiecrankie. On the day we arrived there were at least seven Buzzards (tourist eagles) in the air above the cottage. Over the course of the week I took loads of pictures of them. Here are just a few.
