Ring-necked Parakeet

This Ring-necked Parakeet was around Beeston during late December 2011 in to January 2012.  Unfortunately it disappeared when the cold weather hit mid-Jan.  Thanks to Max Hill for passing on this photo of the bird taken by Graham Stock.

Radwell White-fronts

I scanned the flock for about 45 mins before they flew in from the Viaduct pit area.

Extreme distance photography but you can see four of five of the six White-fronted Geese in this shot. The sixth was separate from this group and indeed flew in first from the back pits. The five here flew around for a few minutes before landing.

Two Great Northern Divers - Stewartby Lake

A short video clip of the two Great Northern Divers on Stewartby Lake. Taken using a Canon S95 compact camera attached to a Nikon ED50 (27x) scope via an adaptor. The birds were at a distance of about 500 yards and I was using approx 9x zoom on the camera.
