Staying Local Again

Well I awoke at 7:20 this morning I should have thrown back the sheets and gone birding somewhere further a field but I just pulled the duvet up.

So anyway I went to Rye Meads, its not often I go in the mornings these days. The hedgerows were alive with birds. Not seen so many Chaffinches there for a while. For a change I went through the one way turnstile on to the HMWT bit of the reserve.

I didn't seen anything rare but had a thoroughly enjoyable morning.
