Slimbridge selection

I visited Slimbridge WWT yesterday and was lucky with the superb light.  Below are a few highlights of a stunning day.  The shots below are from both the wild side and the captive side, eg the Smew and the Flamingos rae obviously captive.  I deliberated for a while on whether to post the shots here, but I liked them.

Bewick's Swans coming into roost late in the afternoon.  Only 150 or so of the normal 300+ have reappeared this year.

Grey Heron feeding in one of the many pools.
