Well I was planning on going to London today. I was going to wax lyrical about wonderful works of art. Instead I woke up a bit later than expected and then decided my bed was too comfy.
So I went to the forest. Lots of winter thrushes about with numbers of Fieldfare and Redwings up on a month ago, annoyingly the Goosander on the lake which was reported earlier in the week had gone, still the Mallards were joined by lots of Gadwall, a few teal and tufties and a lone drake Wigeon. Only one Great Crested Grebe in winter plumage and lots of Moorhens. I also saw a few flocks of Long Tails. A pleasant couple of hours.
As I drove into Harlow on the A414 (from the M11) a couple of deer ran along the side of the road.
The light was attrocious but a few pics.
Given the last one was with VR off and was at 1/125 hand held I was quite pleased. The ergorest works fairly well.
