In the duck pond

By rpba18205
Wild birds at St Andrewís Pond, St Blazey(Nr. St Austell), Cornwall.

In 2005 this pond made the National news when a young mother out with her daughter to feed the ducks, spotted what was reported to be a 2ft long alligator in the water and immediately called the RSPCA.
An RSPCA dragnet of the area surrounding the pond failed to locate the beast, and the organisation warned locals to keep their eyes peeled for rogue reptiles. It did note, however, that the cold may already have done for the animal. I didnít manage to get any pictures of the alligator Iím sorry to say.
These shots taken 1230hrs on Thursday.Quite nice large.

A very nice series at the pond, Rob, and with a fascinating background story. Each shot is good, but my favourites are 1, 4 and 6.
