Comment:The colour here is as it was. In the pre-dawn gloom there was virtually none in the image. I took several images with a view to trying to capture the full range of white through to black - with individual birds varying from black on black through to black on white. Here and there the white frontal shield of the Eurasian Coots glimmer in the Stygian gloom.
