The north coast of Clare`s waterways have a wide selection of birds that use this peaceful area , Numbers of Shovelar and other ducks on the ponds , Red breasted Merganzers habit the quiet calm saltwaters , Little Egrets habit the edges of both looking for food
The cold continues and birds which you dont normally get a chance of photographing are having to let down there guard down , such as this Woodcock at Blackhead. Ive been trying for years for these pics, and xmas day. Thanks
On an unfrozen part of the river Fergus, a pool of ducks and swans mill about , a Fox hopes on maybe a duck for lunch.
Goldeneye share the pools with Tufted duck, Mallard,Goosander & Whooper swans....its -10 below
