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)

Please Note: Due to Blogger removing the option for comments from "Registered Users - includes OpenID" option in Blogger settings, and replacing it with the option for registered Google users only. I was concerned that this option might restrict some 'genuine' users from commenting. However, I am now getting around 10 'anonymous' comments per day, and this is just getting too annoying. I am, therefore, applying the 'User with Google Accouns' restriction. If this prevents you from commenting, please let me know by email to - please note that this is not my regular email address, which remains unchanged from the original.
