I headed off for Polesden Lacey this morning. I'd awoken to fog but forecast said it would clear. It did... but the further north I got the more it reappeared and thicker it got. Blow this for a game of soldiers, I thought, so Plan B, and went off to WWT Arundel...
The mist cleared and the sun came out...
Around by the feeders, all the usual culprits and then a Nuthatch dropped by..
The lichen looking very pretty along the board walk..
I took this pic of the Cormorant and Lapwing against the sun; I was going to deleted it but thought it wasn't that bad after all... you, dear reader, may of course have a different view!!
Had a bowl of soup before leaving, and watched this Grey Wagtail. Pics taken through a window so not the best
and while eating, I also saw 3 male Bullfinches on the far side.. great stuff :D
and around the reserve in the sun.... which only last about 20-30 minutes.. but it was great to have it..
and drove home with grey skies.. but hey... not too bad a trip out.. and the other highlight was seeing 2 Goldcrests.. nice !!..
