Not a bad day with the camera.

As I walked along the main path at Brandon Marsh on Friday morning I was not confident of getting any shots as it was overcast,a bit cool and it was spitting rain.As it turned out it was one of the better days.

I had a quick look in the Teal hide and besides the 3 Green Sandpipers there was nothing else about.As soon as I opened a flap in the East Marsh hide I saw a Little Egret on the far bank which turned out to be a decent bird because it flew over to land in front of the hide.Here are a few shots.

Also present and close to where I first saw the Little Egret was a cracking looking Black-tailed Godwit.Now it wasn't such a decent bird because it remained a long way off all day often hiding in the undergrowth.This is all I could manage.

A quick look in the Carlton hide was well timed as a Kingfisher was flitting about including a visit to the new post to the right of the hide.Here are a few shots (yawn yawn).

Once again I am well impressed with your images! I think you had a better deal at Brandon than I had at Draycote! Originaly I was heading for Brandon but had a "feeling" Draycote was going to hold something special. How wrong can you be?!! At least I managed to see the Egyptian Goose which has eluded me on previous visits!
