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.

|Grey Heron feeding in one of the many pools.
|Female Common Pochard
|Drake Smew (captive)
|Woodpigeons pairing up for the breeding season.
