Another truly diabolical day, rain from mid morning till gone dusk!!
I ventured out after work this afternoon, and had to put on my sodden coat after walking home in a downpour - yuk, but I suppose you can only get so wet!
I thought i'd just pay a brief visit to the lakes, maybe something will have dropped in to the relative shelter there, but no, I arrived soaked and bedraggled to be met by 4 MOORHEN and just 1 MALLARD, even the Canada Geese had gone :-), mind you, the gas cannons we back with a vengeance today!!
My walk to the lake was much in haste due to the rain, and the only birds noted were MISTLE THRUSH, SONGTHRUSH, GOLDCREST, TREECREEPER and 3 pairs of Mallard on the growing pools of water in the Wet Woods.
Oh well, one day soon i'll have one of those good days that make days like today seem worth all the effort - but I do hope it's not too far away :-)
