Blimey, look at the state of these things!
Superb shots from Rich Steel (link to his site on the right) of leucistic Moorhens over on the Wirral - just shows it don't have to be rare to be weird,and weird is most definitely good.
Over to you Rich...
Explaining these bizarre birds, Rich says: "For the second year running the Moorhens in Wallasey Central Park have produced leucistic young.
Last year they produced one which disappeared but this year there are two.
"I had a quick web search and there is reckoned to about 4 of these in the UK which means if I can get both birds in a photo that's half the UK population in one shot!!!"
Incredible images - the everyday becomes the surreal - I might try taking a bit of gloss or emulsion to the Tufties, Little Grebes and Coots on the Sands Lake over the next week or so - it'll brighten up the winter...but what colour should I paint the Mute Swans???
Thanks, as ever, for sharing Rich.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
