Blimey it's not raining.

I was surprised to find on Friday morning it was not raining and the sun was shining so I raced over to Brandon Marsh to see if anything was about for me to point the camera at.

As expected it was very quiet.The walk round past the wind pump and by the golf course produced more aeroplanes than birds my only spot being a Willow Warbler.It took me nearly two hours before I met up with another birder and he was so depressed with the lack of birds I could see tears in his eyes.

The water was high everwhere so little was on show from the hides but at least the Carlton Hide was a little better with the photogenic juvenile Little Grebe and a Green Sandpiper showing well but there were no KF's and no Hobbies.

Poor day for taking pics.I even started to take shots of dragonflies.
