A great day out

Hello all, it has been one of those days, brilliant! I decided to go out early this morning and had not driven up the road and my phone went off. I pulled over to answer it and it was Mike. He said that he was going to finish early and as Sue was a way working would I like to go out. We arrange for him to call when he finished and I was going to take him to Bloors Wharf. This is where I was going  anyway.

I carried on  to the Wharf and it was nice and quiet with only dog walkers and a few people chatting.

I walked to the wharf and the birds were a little father out than I had hoped. As I got to the wharf there landing in front of me was a pair of Pied Wagtails. I have not seen these for a while but I had a few in the garden years ago.

 This was a good start to the day. I carried on walking.

Out of this world
Jupiter
I would love to show the moon but they are too dim!

The Moon at 2300
That is it for now

This afternoon Mike and I ended up at the RSBP reserve at Motney Hill because hight water was at 1400 and all the birds were out.
I am letting Mike put his up first and I will put mine up tomorrow.
Go for it Mike

  3. It was really a good afternoon, We took a slow wonder out there and just watched the birds.

    I still have not ID that bird as it is not in my book.

    The picture of Jupiter was hard work but it is 400,000,000 miles away.
    More tonight for tomorrow..
