Greylags in May



(Anser Anser.)

The Visitors have returned.  Ten so far (as against twelve last year), but one was staying well uphill from the others, not talking.  Several of the flock seem to be looking at the photographer, but I think they were wary of something on our roof; perhaps crows.

Word has it there was a lapwing in the field a couple of weeks ago, for the first time in several years.  Maybe it’ll be a good year for something.  Not for human visitors, but.

Also, new lens, which is why I managed to take the shot at all.  But it rather exposes the limitations of the old camera...
