๐Ÿ“– Diary Update #55

๐Ÿ‚ ⛅19C Tuesday 19th September 2017 ~ A few hours at Brandon Marsh today with the camera in the lovely autumnal sunshine. While making my way down to the reserve from the car park a couple of Skylarks drifted overhead, plus a real rarity for Brandon in the form of a single Rook.

Grey Heron at Baldwin Hide
I think I've just about mastered the camera micro adjustments and lens calibration in time for my trip to Spain tomorrow! Thankfully my flights in and out are not on the Ryanair cancellation debacle!

I spent the majority of my stay around the woodland areas, with an hour or so in the Baldwin Hide. Here there was plenty of Kingfisher activity and an opportunity to practice my photographic techniques with two contrasting species, Cormorant and Grey Heron.

A very confiding Marsh Tit
A very accommodating Marsh Tit in Horsetail Glade gave some close range photo opportunities which I duly accepted.
