Widewater Lagoon in search of Goosanders... not there...

I've got family duties at the mo, so getting out for a bit today was very essential to get out into the fresh air!
The light was dreadful, so record shots only today!

I went in search of the Goosander that had been seen at Widewater Lagoon... but not today, and not by me!  Did bump into a couple of ladies I know, though - Elaine & Susan.

There were a collection of about 12 Little Grebes .. which was good!  And some hybrid Mallards.. No Little Egrets seen today.

Couple of dozen Teal...

and a Sanderling

and a Rock Pipit

Went on to Pulborough Brooks - vast number of ducks about and also saw 7 Black-tailed Godwits... nice one.

Redstarts and Fieldfares about in the berry-covered bushes,

and a couple of Snipe - hiding as usual!
Good to get out into the fresh air and, for a brief period, some sunshine!

Lovely to see the birds and getting out in the fresh air is always a good idea!

Great shots of the Sanderling Tricia, I like seeing them running along the shoreline, amusing little birds.
