Mortal Moorhen Combat

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my previous upload. A further thank you goes to: Bantu (Vikram), Cats123 (Jeff) and Photographerjoe (Joe) for their User Awards.

Today's images were captured the other day whilst enjoying a wonderful day out at Arundel WWT with some fellow togs from the site.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever you may be getting up to. As for me I shall be running around, chasing things up whilst packing my stuff away prior to my move next week.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Superb sequence of these elusive birds - anytime I've tried to capture a moorhen they usually dart behind a tree!
