England Countryside

Happened to visit England in May 2012 and was staying at this British countryside at Luton Hoo. Took a few snaps of the bird life in and around the lake very near to the place I was staying.




This Partridge just zoomed past before I could take a better shot.

Lot of coots in the lake a good family photo here:





And a beautiful Grebe here:

Birding near Bay area, California

 September 2010,  I happened to visit the Sunol wilderness near Pleasanton with my friends Tirtha and Pradyot.

Though it was cloudy and not ideal for bird watching we did find quite a few varieties like the Scrub Jay, Acorn wood pecker, twohees and wild turkey

We also visited the shoreline and Alviso Slough (San Jose) thanks to Vivek Pathak. Having seen the shoreline only from a distance all this while, it was quite interesting to see it is home to such a variety of birds.

.... Alviso had a lot more variety of wetland birds like the sandpipers, Egrets, cormorants and herons. Have captured a few here but definitely worth a second visit.
