Except for going out in the rain the middle of last week to try and find the Yellow Browed Warbler that had been reported near Brueton Park and failing the poor weather had kept me indoors.So this morning getting very desperate to go out with the camera I ignored the poor conditions and went over to Marsh Lane.
Got there not long after 9.00 AM to find it very gloomy and very windy.It was however very warm for November at 16 degrees.
Found a lone Common Gull on the CP pool but nothing else interesting among the usual ducks,geese and gulls.
Had some very good luck in the North Causeway screen hide when just as I was about to move on a Kingfisher appeared on the reeds but unfortunately stayed for only a couple of seconds.I was lucky to get this shot in the gloom.
On the way back another look in the CP hide revealed the pair of hybrid Whooper Swans had paid another visit.
