wet Morning

I was up early this morning hoping to get out before the rain. This I did and I thought I would try the  lower estuary, BIG mistake all of the birds were well out and well out of real view. I then drove to Motney Hill and found that there were some Red shanks within range just. By this time the weather had changed and it had started to rain. I took the chance that it would not be much, wrong again. I took a few pictures but really am not pleased with the results. These are  the best of a bad bunch.

Thursday I received a new card for the camera, I up graded from a class 4 to a class 10 HDHC 32gig this has made a difference to the burst rate of the camera. It still is only 8 frames but to writes at 19meg instead of 4.

Feeding


Where is everyone


Time for a wash and brush up


Where cold



I can't be bothered


Paddling

Here we go, here we go,
 As I said the best of a bad bunch, the weather was to blame as well as I did not want to get rain on my new lens.

High water is around 1500 today so it may not be worth going down again. While I write this it's raining quite hard.

Better luck tomorrow.

I have just been going through Thursday morning pictures, here are some that did not make the grade. While I was looking I suddenly realised that there were a lot of birds laying down asleep.

Head in wing
These birds are out cold

Whatdoyouwant
Fast asleep too
If you look carefully you can see a few birds laying down or standing with their eyes closed.

About 2245 I took a look out to see how the Moon was doing. It was a bit cloudy but worth a shot. this is what I came up with.

A bit cloudy but not bad.

That's it thank's for looking
