It was indeed a pleasant day, it was good to be out walking in very well planned out environment, what struck me most was the peaceful atmosphere. We were blessed with good weather and good company, the photography was a bonus! It was a shame the onsite cafe did not offer anything other than tea, coffee, cakes and crisps! Note for any future visits pack sandwiches .
I managed to take 249 images, I haven’t review them yet, I uploaded them to my PC on Sat and will probably get around to them sometime this week. Apart from the images I also took home several insect bites another note to self pack bug repellent! I was excited at the Kingfisher sighting, it’s the first one I have seen through my lens. I don’t think that he was any good at fishing of the 4 attempts/dives, not one produced a catch! Looking on the images on the camera, like the Kingfisher I had failed to0 catch an image, a 1000mm lens would not have gone amiss!
Your Egret in flight was well caught (well done), I didn’t see it until it was in the air and on its way so I just got the back of it! I’ll add mine here once I have processed them.
