The sun was out for a change on Tuesday morning so off I went to my local patch Marsh Lane.When taking shots you definitely need some brightness but sometimes the sunshine is not your friend and it was the case that day the sun was always in the wrong position.

We hoped on site that that this distant bird on the streamline trees was the female Brambling others had seen but we couldn't get close and were not sure.

A female Shellduck was on the RW pool.Luckily the bright sunshine was behind me.

The was a female Goosander also on the RW pool near the River hide but the sunshine was in the wrong place and this is all I could get.

Tried to get a better shot from the Oak hide but it was too far  off from that hide.

Two Little Egrets showed well from the Causeway hide but the bright sunshine was blowing out the whites and you had to be careful.

Did track down a Redwing but the bright sunshine was right behind it so no keepers.

It's pretty clear from this post that unless conditions are perfect I struggle to get any decent shots.
