The sky is a very funny colour

It would have been easy after a rather nice roast beef dinner to have headed home and finished my book but I thought I had better go out for a walk.

I moaned yesterday about the lack of blue sky, well as this picture from Rye Meads shows today was different!



I soon heard and saw a Great Woodpecker but other than the expected ducks it was quiet. I almost thought the camera was a waste when these floated by.







At Tern hide there were lots of birds including Common, black headed, lesser black backed and Greater Black Backed Gulls as well as Lapwings but all were too distant until the Rye Meads speciality showed up in camera range for a change!

A Green Sandpiper.







I got a brief of Muntjack hiding in the bushes.

I intend to go further a field next weekend - assuming it's not chucking down!

Waiting in hopes of a blue sky here soon. Love the swan pictures. Beautiful creatures.
