The first is a Brown Booby. Not sure which species of pelican the other is though.

Superb egret shot Rob!

Some visitors to my garden this autumn...

I went to Slimbridge Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust today. Only a lightening quick visit as it was -3 degrees and I took the wife and daughter...! Rubbish light as well, so only high ISO images. I liked the place though, I'll definitely be going back for another visit.
