Am up in Essex this weekend and called in on Rye Meads. Whilst in one of the hides, the heavens opened, the sky was black and eventually the sun came out.... a great rainbow day.
On the way there I'd seen a Red Kite on the A10 so that was great; what wasn't so great was a lorry that threw up a stone into my windscreen, whilst I was on the M11. A repair is now necessary.
However... it was a Green Sandpiper and Snipe day today.... the light was good after the storm....
