Friday morning this fairweather birder decided to do what real birders do and go out when the weather is poor to see if anything good had dropped in.Well early on Friday the weather was poor it was very dull and raining so I went down to Marsh Lane hoping something as good as yesterday's Little Tern was there.
Well how did I do? Pretty crap as it turned out.Well as far as any new really good birds dropping in so I'll have to go back to fairweather birding.At least then with brighter conditions you've got a chance of getting some decent shots.
The visit was not a disaster though as a couple of Water Rails showed very well in the marsh from the Oak hide.My first Water rails for several months.The Garden Warbler was giving a concert from it's usual tree near the road gate.The White Wagtail was again on the islands to the left of the Oak Hide and a Cuckoo was calling out from the trees at the edge of the Railway Pool.
