The sky is - Blue!!
The sun is - Shining!!
I am - awake!!
No - I am dreaming!!
Never mind, despite the grey and drizzle I duly arrived at London Wetland Centre (and had breakfast :D - best value meal there). Some of the regulars were already breakfasting and John and Therese very kindly offered me a seat in their car as they were off to (hopefully) see the Waxwings that had been frequenting a Homebase (other stores are available ;) ) car park in Osterley. I accepted their kind offer and together with another couple of friends we headed off.
In a rather messy corner of the car park we waited - together with some other familiar faces that had arrived before us. Well - three Waxwings duly arrived but perched up high against a dull sky - not really conducive to good photography.
But hey - nothing ventured nothing gained
(so herewith another set of record shots - perhaps before 2011 is over, I will have managed a picture that isn't a record shot!!)
Having watched the 3 for a bit, a small flock of them flew over and...... continued going!! harumph!!
We headed back of to Barnes. Nothing much about although one of the Bitterns was showing - intermittently!
(if you have, I'd be pleased to know what the Dapchick's meal was?)
And that was it for the day.... I came home.... and the sun? Still noticeable by its absence!!
