Good Friday? Could have been better in terms of weather

I was awake early.. the sun was shining so I headed off to RSPB Pulborough Brooks.

First sighting was of a pair of Linnets.  Later on I saw huge flocks of them ducking and diving down onto the fields.  Dreadful light and no pictures.  A Green Woodie bounded away in front of me.  There were a few Garganey out on the water - and thanks to a kind birder with a scope who gave me a view of these.  A Male Bullfinch was ahead..

And in one place 5 Snipe and another there were 3.

These are purely record shots today - the sun went in not long after I got there and that, as they sat, was that!

From there I went onto Petworth House... posted pictures before from this house but nonetheless, a few more.

The Daffodils gave a welcome bit of colour to the day!

All the daffodils were miniature!

This woody woodie, was something to do with a trail organised for the children visiting today!

 Wood Anemone (I think)


A few Greylags, with Canada Geese, Mallards, Tufted Ducks and about 3 Pied Wagtails.

and around the house

A real log fire!

This picture was difficult to take and I'm surprised I got it!  The speaking image of the woman was projected onto a piece of glass of the same shape as the woman.  Very clever!

And that was that.  Needless to say as I do this, the sun is now shining... ;)

A bit more sun and warmth and those Daffs will look great Tricia.

Lovely to see that spring has arrived over your way. Great shots as always.
