Dad update and trip to Rye Meads

So after cancelling the holiday last week I thought I'd take Monday - Weds off and have day trips but work scuppered that as it did Thursday but Friday? Result until Weds when Dad had a hospital appointment.

Still we now know why he has lost his sight in his left  eye and this is treatable so WOO HOO!! We got back and found a note to say the nurse had called  to do his blood pressure. No one told us! So I arranged an appointment for this afternoon. Results normal!! So double WOO HOO!! He is feeling more like his old self.

I did sneak down to Rye Meads. Quiet bird wise - well 5 Green Sandpipers and similar Lapwings and I heard a Cetti's but nothing in camera range....... The Black Necked Grebe chick has flown so that is good news!!

I got to the Kingfisher hide five minutes after the change over...... still they are on a potentially record 4th brood!!

There was a hiding Grey Heron so this coot got snapped.....

If only Kingfisher were so obliging!!
