Just a bit further a field.

For the first time in ages i was free to travel further a field today. I didn't exactly go far as I went to the Essex Wildlife Trust reserve at Hanningfield Reservoir.

I was chuffed with a lone Black Necked Grebe from the causeway. Other notable birds were some distant Long Tailed Ducks (never saw one last year), Ruddy Ducks, loads of Goldeneye and Great Crested Grebes. In the woods were Blue, Great, Coal and Long Tailed Tit and a goldcrest flock.

After lunch I decided OC would be saying PHOTOS!! so I picked up my camera for a hour at Amwell. Saw my first Water Rail of the year as well.

The light was awful and I had to brighten the photos. That's my excuse.

Love the last two pics of the Great Tit - nice to have different angles.
