Well Dad went out yesterday which was good. He reckons it would be easier with a patch over the eye!! Think he is a tadge nervous.
I took him up the docs for the flu jab. When I drove past at 8:45 they were queueing but we had a cup of tea and by the time we pulled up it was clear and he was out in two minutes. I dropped him in Bishops Stortford and he bussed it home.
I went over the forest, very quiet (except for a Willow/Chiff in flock of Long Tails) but the weather was to die for!!
May I ask which of the next two you prefer?
So where to now? I went to Audley End Mansion.
I love the reflections in this sequence.
The duck spots a shadow.
Oh its a human with a camera!
Oh got home and checked birdguides and found there were two good birds at Amwell Gravel Pits a male Scaup and a Ferruginous Duck (only seen one of these before). Ferruginous is a bit of a mouthful so they are commonly known as fudge ducks. I promptly went to seen them. Saw both (also great views of a Snipe) but were two distant for photos so we'll finish with a few dragonfly photos.
