Last Sunday I had an early morning start at Howdon Wetlands. High Tide was a couple of hours past as the sun rose so a lot of the Birds had headed off but there were still a few left.
Some of the 27 Grey Herons
and down in the old Dock............
Meanwhile just outside the hide a Wren was doing a bit of displaying
A Fox was also out having a wander round and attempting to hunt for quite a while and whilst I was videoing it a flash went through the viewfinder which I realised immediately was a Kingfisher and sure enough a few minutes later it flew in and perched about 10m from the hide for a good 6 minutes
(note the kingfisher at 2:40)
