Tuesday lunchtime I was so fed up with staying in I grabbed the camera and set off for Marsh lane despite the very blustery damp conditions.I was a bit surprised to see a few other birders there as well.They must have been as fed up as me with this dreadful weather.

As expected the place was very wet and on both pools the islands had all but disappeared.There was very little about from what I could see except for some Common Gulls and a Common Buzzard that was battling with the strong wind.A Peregrine was sitting in a very distant tree.

Just before leaving I checked the dragonfly pool to see if the Little Egret was there.It was trying to feed in the gusty wind.
