A Visit to Brandon Marsh.

Went to Brandon Marsh on Tuesday morning for the first time in ages.Headed straight for the Teal Pool hide as there had been a Greenshank visiting the Teal Pool lately.As I entered the hide and sat down this is the site that greeted me.

A patient wait was rewarded with it flying back over and I was able to get some shots.This was the first Greenshank I'd seen at a local patch for ages and I was chuffed because it was another Warks year tick.

Things went downhill after that because in a four hour stay I saw nothing of interest (except a distant view of a Dunlin on the main pool) and didn't use the camera again at all.The weather didn't help because the wind that was supposed to calm down had increased if anything and it was quite chilly.You can tell how strong the wind was in the morning it blew my hat off when I was in the Teal pool hide.

Nice Greenshank, Max - only distant views for me this year.
