On the water at Blashford Lakes
I was unable to capture a fleeting Kingfisher on film at Blashford but this Great Crested Grebe (top) proved more obliging - a smart bird in any plumage. Along with the usual fayre, a pair of Egyptian Geese and this Common Sandpiper (bottom) adorned the shore of Ibsley Water. The hide overlooking Ibsley is an excellent place to photograph any passing waders - well known for its nesting Little Ringed Plover, I have also had captured good images of Lapwing and Redshank from this hide.
