We were out in the dark. I was really well organised. Last night prior to retiring I made a cheese sandwich. Popped in in a box and laid it in the fridge……………It’s still there. I was famished when we got back after a six mile wander.
The light this morning was almost non existent. Not a happy snappy morning at all. The sun is out now but so will be dozens of people. We walked down to the lake and I was rewarded by lots of birds. I didn’t use the long lens as it’s too slow. I had ISO at 1600 as it was. That’s my limit for noise management. It can be reduced but the only way I know of is to soften the image. Mine are soft enough to begin with!
I’m going to show you what I found as I had such a wonderful three and a half hours. I’ll save the best till last so just zip on down to the end if you get bored.
These are very noisy………….not the birds……..the images. Both are Great Crested Grebe. The one on the left in it’s winter plumage…………..Already! These will enlarge with a click. Not really worth it though.
The Chapel is a little shy, it hides behind trees. Tomorrow the forecast is better so I will set out a little later and try for a look inside. I’ll also attempt to get some sharpish pictures of all the birds. Not much chance of the latter but I will do my best.
They have a wetland here with a hide. I’ll go and upset some more birders. I’ll get there early and set up everything I own in all the wee port hole thingies.
Have a grand weekend.
