It seems to have been raining all week but that’s probably just my perception. I managed a brief trip to Duchess Pond in Stoke Park this afternoon. i’m glad I wore my wellies as it was certainly very wet underfoot.
The area around the reeds has been dry until now. I saw a snipe here last year and so it was worth a look.
Other than 9 mallards and a couple of moorhens there were only 2 birds of note to photograph – a kestrel and a blackbird. A cormorant and a grey heron flew over but I was too busy trying to take landscapes to capture them with my camera.
Not a bird in sight
