bit of a wild goose chase by blackfox wildlife and nature imaging, on Flickr

Those Canada geese have been sent by our Commonwealth brothers and sisters back to the mother country. They are everywhere here. Nice shots!

I took my grandchildren to the park this afternoon, and the Tamron 150-600 was great for long distance close-ups of them. Then, there was an aerial dogfight between a kestrel and a crow. It's the third I have seen this month as the brave crows defend their nests. So, here is a collage of their manoeuvres.

Nest building from a pair of Osprey on an early Sunday morning.  This "platform" sat empty last year so it's good to see it get some use. 

The platform is located in field near a lake in a rural part of Minnesota...about 90 of these were built when they reintroduced Osprey to the area 20 years ago.

Because there are no trees within 200 yards of this particular platform, it's difficult to get close without the Osprey flying off. (usually away from me)

I got lucky with a couple shots when they returned.

another shot from my trip in early april to the red kite feeding farm (gigrin) in mid wales ,the sight of a couple of hundred of these swooping in for a hour or so of feeding frenzy is well worth the 200 mile round trip for me .plus i always seem to pick good weather when i go ,not that common in mid wales  ::)
