These photos were taken on yesterday at The Mere at Ellesmere in Shropshire.
I would love to know what type of pigeon it is - it was certainly very attractive and there seemed to be the only one there.
I've just ordered a reference book about British birds so I should know a bit more in future!!......I hope!!
It was really cold and incredibly dull weather.
It's the first time I've done any semi-serious bird photography and makes you appreciate, even more, the quality of images you are treated to here on EPZ!!
I would have liked a more out of focus background and, maybe, I could have blurred it somewhat in PS. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate your thoughts!
Many appreciative thanks for all the clicks and comments on my Bodiam Castle upload.
