RSPB Conwy and Burton Marshes

On Tuesday, with having a free day I decided to head off to Wales and visit Conwy's RSPB reserve. For most of the day it was raining on and off with constant heavy winds, which got worse towards the end of the day.

  1. Hello Eve,
    Very great to see these different shots.
    Wonderful that horses and the flying birds, that's not easy but you've done it very well.
    The shot of the canadian goose is my favorite, so beautiful!!
    Nice to hear that you photographed with a Sony camera too.

    Many greetings,

  2. Sounds like a good day out Eve :-) Great pictures.

  3. Thanks Marco, yes the Canadian Goose was posing perfectly, so I couldn't resist taking a quick photo!


    Hi Andy, it was :) I definitely got a good blast of fresh air that's for sure!
