Another first sighting of the came at lunchtime. The same pond, but a less welcome species. It's a terrapin (first of the year, and the first time I've photographed one swimming). They are discarded pets, and supposedly don't breed in our climate. That may be so, but they are predatory and I'm sure this one is larger than the ones I saw last year. This may not be good news for the ducklings, though there are plenty of other risks out there for them; in the air, and on land.
The final shot is a slight break from my normal stuff. I've been trying for ages to get a decent photo of the Amex Community Stadium (Brighton & Hove Albion's home). This I think might be it.
Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.
