Rutland Water on 9th June 2008

I did not manage any Osprey pictures during my watch duty this day - in fact it was an unusually quiet day all round. I did, however, manage a few photos of some less celebrated birds.

Common Tern

When one sees Coots bumbling around, it is easy to forget how aggressive these birds can be. There was a real humdinger of a battle at one point, and the following photos show a little of this.

Coot Fight

Black-Headed Gull

Pheasant (juvenile)

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
