Once again a solitary trip out at the weekend to Big Waters was all I could fit in to a busy schedule. Got there a bit earlier than the others and immediately picked up a Jay which seemed to be favouring a high pine. I pointed out the tree to Keith B when he arrived and sure enough it flew back to the next tree after a few minutes. Just a Jay to the rest of you to us a great patch tick. Walked round with the rest of the regular crew and was also joined by Tony, Graeme B's brother. Alan J gave up as we set a cracking pace attempting to get round in record time, he muttered something about having to pick up an important package and taking it somewhere ! (Any excuse to get out of a long walk) We did spend a bit of time watching the 13 White fronts but they stayed quite distant although seemed settled. Did get a few pictures but a SD card failure put paid to most of them. Did manage to get a short video off the card though, so here you are you lucky people.
Also a few other pictures of the day follow
Song Thrush singing well
Early shot but still a bit misty
Plenty of Goldfinches around
A lot of Swan Racing going on
A distant shot of the White Fronts
Looking at this lovely lady one might think she could be a few pounds overweight or ?
Still a bit misty at the end of the visit
