I have finally finished processing and updating my Sanderling images. I have added 67 new images to my website. I had many shots of winter plumaged birds taken locally on the Wirral and North Wales. Then I had images of breeding plumaged birds, taken on the Outer Hebrides, back in 2013. It's hard to believe it is the same species when you compare the two plumages. Both very stunning in the right light and conditions.

Almost everywhere we went in Iceland, where there was water, Red-necked Phalaropes would be present. These tiny little birds were hard to ignore as they darted around at great speed, frantically catching flies. I ended up taking many more shots of them than planned, they are very photogenic and are hard to resist as they present themselves right in front of you. On several occasions I was lying down photographing something on the water and would have a Phalarope swim between me and the subject. Great birds and great fun to do. 54 new images of them on my website: Steven Round Bird Photography

Back in October last year, my friend Rich and I spent the best part of a day photographing Pink-footed Geese. It was quite a few years since I had photographed them properly. This was mainly down to timing, wind direction and sunshine. Anyway, on this day all these factors came together and we got some pleasing results. With plenty of birds, which were still migrating in from the north, the skies were full of them. It may be another 6 or 7 years before the conditions are right again, but I now have enough images of them to last, and have just added 77 to my main website. Here's just a few of them.

Another of the Iceland species processed. The Fulmar was in great numbers there, giving us the chance to get a good variety of shots. From them soaring around cliff tops, to a large group of them squabbling at a water outlet from a fish factory, and close up of them perched. Most poses were covered. 59 of these images now added to my main website - http://stevenround-birdphotography.com
