So what to do today? I had visited all bar two of the Sussex Churches I wanted (one was locked the other just not convenient). I had visited all the places I really wanted to. I could go for a few Hampshire churches but quick research last night suggested I may not find many of the 6 unlocked so I went back to the WWT centre at Arundel.

I saw a gleam of mischief in the juvenile delinquent's eye. He will grow up to be a terror.
Do you ever print any of your photos?

Another good day by the looks of it. It seems as though I was in the wrong county - no sun here today!

Goodly selection of subjects; great flight shots - particularly the terns!!

Really like the angle of the very last Greylag chic picture.

Great selection of pictures Pete.
Never seen a Gargany before, one for my list.
The little 'mugger' looks full of mishief, and the island shot at Petworth looks stunning.

Cracking shots of the young mugger!

Another great set of photo's Pete.
The little 'Mugger' superb.
But too me the outstanding ones, are the Gull in flight, followed by the Terns, also to get the detail as you have of these inflight, well it's a credit to you.
ps. I think you Gull, is a 2nd winter Herring Gull.

Wonderful photos Pete. I particularly like the young coot and little mugger...adorable. The flight pictures are fabulous. And the flowers...well, what can I say. I'm green with envy.
