Weather forecast promised a slight improvement today... went shopping and visited Widewater again.
This time, 2 pairs of Red Breasted Mergansers and...
Oooh I thought..
Yup, one male Goosander .. nice!!
Came home to have a snack and in the afternoon had some sunshine so popped over to a very water-logged Warnham. The Tern hide walkway to the door was underwater.. so went no further. Even ettig across the boardwalk to the Woodpecker hide, I really needed wellies.. which were at home but managed to negotiate the flooded pathway.
Lovely to see a buzzard against a much-forgotten blue sky!! Record shot only..
Male Reed Bunting was visiting..
One lone Siskin..
and a visit from a curious Jay..
A few Long-tailed tits which was good..
And that was that.. .. pleasant hour... and what will the weekend bring?.. more rain no doubt but it is noticeably colder - which is no bad thing!!
