Between The Fens And The Sea

This scene at Birdwatch Ireland's East Coast Nature Reserve at Blackditch near Newcastle is brought about by controlled shallow flooding of coastal grassland fields during the winter months and is a magnet to wading birds.  Low intensity cattle grazing in the summer months keep the grassland in suitable condition for wintering geese and swans.

It's an amazing shot - looks like a painting.

Magnificent photo. I existed to see Van Gough's signature in the corner.
