Don't believe I would ever take these large beautiful birds for granted. Here's hoping they will soon be a successful breeding bird in Gloucestershire. They came so close this year. The young bird that hatched from the egg at Slimbridge didn't survive, but hopefully it will happen in another year. They look so great in flight it's really exciting to see them.

Its great to get out early and find out what is breeding in Gloucestershire. There are many birds with young now.

Just looking back over the pictures from The Gambia. A lovely place for bird life. Really enjoyed my stay. What a peaceful scene this guy on the beach with few possessions looking out over the sea, taking no notice of the vulture flying by.

It is great to see the pair of Oyster Catchers that I photographed earlier on their nest, having now raised three chicks that are doing well. They are great noisy parents who chase away any potential predators vigorously.
