For varying reasons I decided to go to London this morning and reasoned that it would be the chance to FINALLY visit a target church in Kilburn.
I breakfasted at Pret and then wandered into Stanfords to pick up a map for next weeks holiday. So after a stroll to Oxford Street....
I got the tube to Kilburn...
We stopped outside Baker Street when an announcement came and said there were signal problems and our journey would be very slow so I just got off at Baker Street
and headed home.... ;)
So I picked up my dSLR bag and headed to Rye Meads. On arrival I found I had the telephoto lens but no body.... This was not my day was it! So I stuck the travel compact in my jacket pocket and wandered around.
As I wandered to the Kingfisher hide I espied a Chiffchaff! That small grey herald of Spring. Curiously I always tend to see them at Rye Meads about this weekend if I'm there!
It was a glorious day weather wise.... you could feel the warmth. From a bird perspective highlights were Chiffchaff, Oystercatcher x2, a Buzzard and 2 Great Crested Grebe.... the later surprisingly rare there.
