Seeing some birds

To start with, Ferry Meadows Country Park, Peterborough:


Black-headed Gulls


Great Crested Grebes

On to Eyebrook Reservoir:

Green-winged Teal

Smew (I always think 'White Nun' should be an alcoholic drink for birders

To finish the day, CEGB Reservoir, Peterborough:

Iceland Gull!

photos taken with Nikon Coolpix 995 + Leica Apo Televid 77 with 20x eyepiece


  1. Your photos are fantastic!

  2. More good shots Ms. Fuller. I can't believe you're the relative novice you claim!

    I'm "working" with a Nikon Coolpix 4500 and an Opticron Imagic 66 scope. Do top end scopes make such a difference or is my technique lacking. Note that your latest shots use a bigger objective lens scope than previously.

    Do I really need to splash out on 80mm flourite glass or can you offer some tips?

    Best regards

  3. I love the Great Crested Grebes, especially the second photo. It looks like two wealthy old women gossiping at an opera intermission.
