Around Canary Wharf

This was meant to be last regular trip to Canary Wharf but like a muppet I left my work phone so back tomorrow.

Anyway a few pics.

The view from South Quay!

Abandoned Metro's ..... must be London!

As you can see the entrance to Canary Wharf tube is dwarfed!!

I like the art in the background against the mundane in the foreground

Rye Meads

And so where to go this afternoon?? Do I head to Wimpole for a new scone of the month? Go to Audley End? As it was I headed to Rye Meads. It was all fairly quiet, there was a Green Sandpiper and a Peregrine about which I never saw .... but I did see a female Brambling on the walk back to the centre. There were Cetti's calling, Reed Bunting and loads of ducks all looking very dapper. 

The view from the Kingfisher hide.

No Kingfisher.... just a male and female Gadwall

I went back to the spot where the Brambling had been reported and there was one female and this little chap!

Male Shoveler

Tufted Duck


Tufted again

Nice to get out!
