Ducks, Waders and Seagulls.

Map

Street view

The map link above should take you to the area where most of the photographs in this post were shot. I was using a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 150 – 600 zoom. Some post processing and chopping  before posting.

Wildlife-1571

First up we have a couple of Mallards ( Anas platyrhynchos ) enjoying the low winter sun.

Wildlife-1573

Teal (Anas crecca ) Male and female. Love the marking of the male Teal, from the striped head to colourful rear.

The next set of photos were shot about a mile along the coast.  This wader is common around the coast in Northern Ireland

Redshank ( Tringa totanus )

Wildlife-1622Wildlife-1631-2

Gull time.

Wildlife-1533

Bath time

Wildlife-1641

Herring Gull (Larus argentatus )  playing tug-o-war with the sea weed.

Wildlife-1522

Common Gull ( Larus canus )

Wildlife-1558a

Taking a guess at this one, I think its a Herring Gull in flight.

 

Wildlife-1689

This smaller gull is a Black Headed Gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus ) in it’s winter plumage.

Wildlife-1674

Again I think this is a Herring Gull delivering  it’s bodily waste on those below.

These next couple of photograph’s are off  our largest wader here in the Uk & Ireland.

Curlew ( Numenius arquata)

Wildlife-1695Wildlife-1702-2

That was my Saturday, photographing the birds along this stretch of coast. There are more to photograph has well as the seals but that’s another day.  Next time I’ll pack a flask of coffee and a warmer coat so I can walk more of the coastline.

Thank you for joining me.

George.
