Common Sandpiper & Magpie - Stewartby Lake

Another photo of the Common Sandpiper taken on the sailing club bank of Stewartby Lake. in slightly better light than I had for the last photos. I just wish it had walked past the car a few minutes earlier when the light was much better as it was for the Magpie. Photos by Martin Green.

Common Sand & Grey Wag - Stewartby Lake

A few photos of the very confiding Common Sandpiper on the sailing club bank of Stewartby Lake. The sandpiper came within 12 feet of Dave Ball's car. Unfortunately, the combination of the poor light and the highly active nature of the bird made it very hard to get both the head and tail in focus at the same time. I'll hopefully get another chance when the light is better... The Grey Wagtail was also on the sailing club bank. Photos by Martin Green.

Hook-tip Gull

This first winter Black-headed Gull was noted in Wardown Park, Luton on 18th December amongst 600 or so of its mates. Maybe a useful adaptation for stealing bits of stale bread from the local Mallards...

Great Northern Diver - Stewartby Lake

A record shot of the Great Northern Diver taken around 3pm this afternoon from the sailing club bank of Stewartby Lake. The diver was very active most of the day, only staying on the surface for a few seconds at a time, making it hard to get better photographs. Photograph by Martin Green.
