Grey day

An early start at the weekend in the hope of catching redstart and/or pied flycatcher before the showers closed in. Caught the sun and had enjoyable, but distant views of a redstart singing his little cotton socks off at the tp of a tall tree.

The clouds had closed in by the time I reached Cannop ponds, but the grey wagtail and Mandarin ducks down on the stream were some recompense.

I found the perfect perch for a woodland bird to display against the bluebell carpet, but unsurprisingly none did.

The siskins had brought a juvenile to the feeders at the stoneworks - just a shame the portacabin background is a bit utilitarian. Pass me my photoshop ..........................
