Another Brandon Trip.






As the weather was forecast as fine I decided to go to Brandon Marsh on Saturday morning to spend some time in the woods to get some shots of the Warblers.

The day turned out to be not only gloomy but also there was some light rain about and definately pretty crap for getting decent shots.Don't you love the weather forecasters.

It realy turned out to be a day of failures on the photo front which was a shame as there were plenty of Willow Warblers,Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs about.Also there was a lone Whitethroat and a couple of Sedge Warblers present but very elusive.Along the main path a Song Thrush was giving a free outdoor concert high up in a tree.

A two hour long battle with several Cetti's Warblers ended in complete failure and I didn't even manage a crappograph.The final score was Cetti's 6 Max 0

I should have gone to Coton as the Black necked Grebes were showing well.
