I left to come home this morning in brilliant sunshine which kept me company on a traffic free M25 and other motorway!
I was going to Warnham Nature Reserve but got there before it was open and wasn't prepared to wait. So off I went to Pulborough Brooks. By which time the sun... (you've guessed it) had gone covered by dark threatening clouds.
Huge numbers of Swifts, Swallow and House Martins, flying, diving and dipping over the water... clouds of them - amazing sight.
As I walked I was seranaded by Nightingales again - mostly in their normal places and on a rare occasion one popped up in front of me..... grrrrrr this bad light ...when are we going to have some better photographic weather!!
A few Goldfinches about; dozens of Blackcaps.. the reserve was alive with birdsong...
May only be record shots but they're the ONLY shots I've ever managed of Nightingales!!
Oh well, perhaps the weather will improve as the week goes on???
