Having discovered the birdhide at Polsden Lacey the other day, I decided to return with my camera. I was earlier than previously which meant the sun was in the wrong place and the birds in shade. I'll get better as time goes on!!
I decided to go on to RHS Wisley as they had Birds of Prey being flown... ah, thought I, some flight shots!
As I got there the sun disappeard behind ever darkening clouds. The birds were resting awaiting their flight time in a couple of hours. So some shots whilst they had their R & R.
I really don't think that this one wanted it's picture taken at all and its expression suggested I was invading its privacy ;)
A Barn Owl was rewarded with a meal.
Decided to go onto the Birdhide. The Kingfisher was present but skulking over the far side behind trees and eventually disappeared from view. And.... by now it had started raining!!
An obliging Treecreeper appeared and was then followed by another; they flitted about for a while before flying off elsewhere.
By the time I got back to the Birds of Prey, the rain was torrential so that was it for the day... I arrived back at the car (in the now emptying car park) rather soggy for my drive home.
Pity really....... I expect we will have less rain at some time; it's just of matter of..... when?
