Another Chance Encounter....

This time at Bakewell.

After the game on Saturday we came back via Bakewell - not the shortest route but it was a pleasant enough evening and we didn't have to be anywhere in particular.

Strolling by the river we spotted a flock of Goosanders:

There were probably 10 or a dozen of them and whilst not an endangerded species or anything (as far as I'm aware), I have only seen them once before - many years ago on a Scottish holiday. Interesting that they were that close to a town. I didn't have the big telephoto lens with me so the pics above were shot with the 18 to 200mm telephoto - and I've "fiddled" a bit in PSE 8

OK - ornithology lecture over - back to sleep guys.
