Old Moor RSPB reserve

I've only been back at school three days and I already have a lot of work, so yesterday the weather was great so I went to Old Moor RSPB reserve for the day to have a break from everything. I have recently been given a new camera as it was time to have an upgrade from my old one, so going to Old Moor gave me a chance to experiment with it. I'm glad I did take it - the light was fantastic and there was a lot to photograph.

Anna, thee are very nice. That detail in the swan's white feathers is hard to get. Good work!

You have wonderful snaps on birds and animals here! I have also similar interests on birds and animals.

Great stuff, the Greenshank is a cracking picture of a rare bird for the region. Be sure to show it off on Birdguides or something!
