- rain had been forecast
- the forecast was correct
- it rained
- for most of the morning
- forecast said "clearing by midday"
- it did (I knew it would)! :D
- for about 15 minutes
- the sky had some blue in it
- and the sun shone
- for about 1 minute!
- it rained heavily thereafter.......
- in the car and leaving - the sun shone again..
Needless to say, the following pictures come with the usual health warning of bad light and bad weather!
Cormorants - about 15 in total.
A couple of Mute Swans take off over the houses.
The are White faced whistling ducks and are collection birds. However, they seemed to be going in for a spot of mutual preening - didn't know birds did this!
Aw bliss; just the spot........
One of the many Lapwing (with a couple of starlings)
A cormorant who had finished fishing (successfully) then took off for a different part of the reserve..
A pleasant, if somewhat damp visit, in good company..
