Sutton park NNR

I Had been watching the reports on this bird for quite some time and despite most of the reports says that people where misbehaving chasing the bird about and the photographers  was doing an superb job of getting us a bad name I decided it was too good an opportunity to miss.
I decided on a plan I would leave home at 4am arrival just before 6am walk across the park to its favourite spot as soon as it got light find the bird and then spend the next 2 hours with it in the the early morning sun light.

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together  😀

By 9am the crowds had started to appear and the light had become quite harsh so I decided to give it best and make for home. 

By the time I had packed my kit away there was 4 photographers trying to hide behind the bush that the bird had previously been feeding from !!!!

Be lucky :0)

Cheddar reservoir

  I spent Sunday with this Grey phalarope not the most obliging bird at first but after the crowds had dispersed and the idiots stopped chasing it round the reservoir it performed beautifully .

Have a good week :0)
