Feathered Variety Part 2

Here is another collection of the feathered variety of wildlife taken the previous week at Blashford Lakes nature reserve, starting with a Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) in its summer plumage on display outside the Tern Hide, the plumage is a much brighter affair to that of its winter one.

There were several Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) just outside the Ivy South Hide, providing the opportunity to shoot both a profile shot and a close up head shot.
