Nothing unusual here at all. All three species are ever-present at Falmer Pond, and (ducks especially) can easily be overlooked in the search for blog content. Anyway, the first two shots were taken in dismal conditions early this morning. For those who wonder about such things, I’ve put the camera settings in the captions.
First up is a nice round robin, one of many that are active at the moment.
The rats were also busy down in the tree roots. I grabbed this shot when one ventured on to the bank where there was a touch more light.
It was slightly better at lunchtime, though still overcast with a hint of drizzle in the air. It flet cold enough for snow, but thankfully that held off. A cormorant was lurking on the island, but I couldn’t get any usable shots. Instead I spent the time watching ducks, including this lively pair.
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.
