A beautiful day here so I couldn't resist skiving off work for a couple of hours fish spotting. And as usual in the closed season there was lots to see.
I saw a few carp & barbel, shoals of roach and chub and I saw a big group of spawning gudgeon. In a few weeks they will all go into hiding, but they can't get out, I'll know they're there - somewhere.
I saw the woodpeckers and watched the kingfishers fishing - kingfishers have a great knack of sitting perfectly still while you focus the camera, then darting off as you press the shutter - lots of photos of blue streaks!
But I did manage a few photos of a parakeet, another bird species that won't sit still long enough for a photo, this one stayed still while I walked around him to get the old tree as the background.
