This morning dawned cold and wet. But this did not deter a number of Camera Club members assembling at 8.am at the Taylor Dam. I took bread to lure and feed the birdlife close enough for some decent photography. There were coots, pukeko, common ducks, Muscovy Ducks and black swans in and around the lake. We had such a lot of fun photographing the birdlife including this family of black swans and cygnets. Maisie the Labradoodle also enjoyed the outing and a walk in the rain.
