Walking on water............................................................ well running actually

I had a lovely boat trip along a section of the River Weaver at the weekend and the weather was fantastic.
We saw quite a few birds during our journey... and some really brought a smile to my face.

 The Moorhens made me laugh as we disturbed them... they really can run on the water.

 Usain Bolt... catch this little fella if you can.

Just goes to prove that there is someone who can walk (and run) on water. Nice one Andrew.

It's so funny to watch them do that. Something must have scared him off. Great catch.

A good shot. Size of their feet they should be able to wander on water.

Is this the same walk when you saw all the cormorants in the tree. From Findlay

Gillian Olson said...

They have really big feet, I guess that helps them run across the surface of the water. Great capture.
