A quick visit to Marsh Lane.

Fed up with the dull damp weather keeping me from going out with the camera I thought sod it and went on Tuesday lunchtime across to Marsh Lane.Although it was very gloomy and pretty chilly it was nice just to be out.

From the Carpark hide there were the usual suspects in great numbers especially Wigeon (hundreds), 13 Common Snipe in front of the hide, and a very amorous pair of Goosanders near the far bank.

I didn't see much from the Oak hide except for at least 10 Tree Sparrows and a Nuthatch.I was very pleased to see the Nuthatch as I hadn't seen one for a while.I managed a few shots but the gloomy conditions didn't help.
