  • Smart Shovelers

    There were quite a few Shovelers at Strumpshaw Fen on Sunday. The drakes were looking resplendent in their immaculate breeding plumage, despite their slightly comical oversize bills.

    E-M1 and 75-300 II.

      Smashing shots Ron.

      We have loads of Shovelers on our reservoir but they don't like cameras and scuttle out of range when they see one.

      Thanks for sharing.

        I don't really know Ed. It was probably between 10-15 metres. I was up in the 'tower hide' looking down on them. These are about 50 percent crops.

          I love the strong colours against the beautifully "wet" and reflective water (some digital cameras tend to make water look glassy but not the EM,s )

            Great birds always one of the main attractions.
