Great Crested Grebe caught a fish

Went out for a long walk today from Aldermaston Wharf to the lakes (former gravel pits) at Woolhampton in some nice late Indian Summer sunshine. Mainly to gain some experience with a new lens for my camera I received on Friday. Among other birds spotted a Great Crested Grebe catching fish in the late afternoon light:

Beautiful Buzzard in flight

On a beautiful sunny afternoon in August 2015 I went for a walk in West Berkshire, hoping to take a few nice pictures. Didn’t spot much for most of the walk, but at one point a beautiful Buzzard flew very low above me, allowing me to take these wonderful shots:

The exact location was at the corner of Admoor Lane and Webbs Lane, about a mile north east of the A4 between Theale and Aldermaston Wharf.
