Sunday morning at Marsh Lane.

As soon as I saw that the rain had stopped at last I went over to Marsh Lane early on Sunday morning.

A visit to all the hides had produced very little to point the camera at but a second visit to the Oak hide produced a few Sedge Warblers quite near the hide darting around in the reeds.Here are a few shots.

This bird landed on the fence right next to the hide and when I took the shot I thought it was a Sedge Warbler but it's not is it????? A Willow Warbler?????

Also from the Oak hide and thanks to Brian I was eventually able to take some shots of the Garganey that I had not been able to find on my last two visits which is no wonder really as it's a bit hard to ID (well it is for me).I'm not sure if it's a female or a male in eclipse???

The only other bird of interest was a Common Sandpiper which was the first I'd seen for several months.
