It has rained and rained most of the week, but I have managed to get out to the park on a couple of days.

Life around the lake has quitened down. The herons have largely left and the egyptian geese have not been around for a while. So I wandered in to the forested parts looking for the little owl. I found an adult and two juveniles hiding in the canopy.

This is one of the juvenile.


Here are some of the shots of the adult.


At the lake I caught this crested grebe fishing.


One morning I went in to the park at 04:30am and I found the rabbits still out and this one wasn’t too shy.


As the sun broke over the horizon I found this pair of fallow deer in a clearing.


The kestrel nest has hatched, but he chicks are still hidden in the nest. Here are the adults.




Here are the larger sized images:


Equipment used:

Nikon D500
Nikkor AF-S 400 f/2.8 VR
Gitzo Systematic Series 4 tripod
Gitzo fluid gimbal

  1. Hey Mads great shots. I was going through my pics and I found one that I thought I’d share. Feel free to use on your blog.

    See you at ponds tomorrow?


    1. Hello Nick,
