A Chilly Morning At The Reflection Table

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

Over the past couple of weeks, my Reflection Table has started to attract visitors so this morning I was up at sunrise in the hope of appearances from some feathered friends.

It was a cold 2 degrees (Celsius) and whilst that may not sound cold to some of you, for us (now seasoned) Algarvers, it is chilly. The surface of the water had a light covering of ice, so reflections were not possible until this melted, however, the table still attracted some visitors.

First up was a very brief visit from a Male Sardinian Warbler that landed on the perch gave a sort of shake-down before moving on its way. I managed to grab a shot of him shaking his wings and tail before he flew away.

The table is getting popular with European Stonechats and they were coming and going for a while and also a European Robin turned up briefly.

One Stonechat decided to investigate the hide and perched for a while on one of the close perches watching for movement through openings.

It wasn’t long before the ice had melted and it was time to grab some reflection shots.

This final photo made me laugh as it looks like he has a Snorkel in his mouth!
