Egret at Loch of Strathbeg

We took the boys up to the RSPB nature reserve at The Loch of Strathbeg on Sunday for a couple of hours.

I didn't get many decent photos, as most of the birds were too far away for my 55-200mm lens to get any decent photos.

Here are a few of the better photos, featuring either the landscape or the local horses.

Firstly a simple landscape. I ran this through Photoshop to give it a bit more punch, as the dull weather (overcast and extremely windy), made everything a little grey...

Some of the horses that were roaming around did put on a show for us!

As I said earlier, the bird photos were a little disappointing.

I did catch a few shots of a lone Egret (that was clearly a long way from home...). But they were at such a great distance that I really am only showing them for the bird watchers to see rather than as examples of photography.

This first one shows the kind of distance that the bird was from  our hide.

These two photos are blown up from much more distant shots...

Finally a very rough and ready little animation that Google backup automatically generated from several photos of the Egret moving around the wetland.
