Oxon Bird Pics: Autumn/Winter 2018/19

Wheatear, Farmoor Reservoir

22 September 2018

A most confiding bird at the western end of the causeway. From this angle, there is almost no sign of the concrete!

As above. Again little sign of the concrete.

A crop of the photo below. I like the dark background to this shot.

A close approach after some wait!  
Kingfisher, Farmoor Reservoir,

13 September 2018

A somewhat distant shot from the Shrike Meadow hide as this bird perched briefly in brilliant sunlight. Has cropped well at this resolution though. The 500f4 II continues to impress me, even with the x1.4TC on.
Great crested Grebe, Farmoor Reservoir

13 September 2018

The light was great in the morning so I couldn't resist making something of it by pausing to get some images of this bird that was close in to the SE corner of F1. Still a good deal of summer plumage left.
