Eastcourt Meadow

Hi All
       Well I manage to get out after I did my Friday shopping. There was no sun and the light was not that good. ISO went up to 800 and the speed never got above 500. Most were taken at F7 or F8.

Before that, when I got up this morning I looked out to see this.

Sunrise East

Sunrise South
As you can see it was still dark but getting light towards the South-east

Later I went shopping and took the camera with me just in case I could go and take a few shots.

I ended up at Sharps Green car park and walk out along Eastcourt Meadow which is part of Riverside Country Park.. It was almost low water but the two old PS's stood out like.......

Grain PS

Kingsnorth PS
Right no more PS's today. 

Walking along the shore line there were some Red Shanks feeding as well as Teal's. BUT

These three were taken as I got out of the car. I almost had a Magpie in plight but the slow speed meant it was deleted.

Moving on along the bank.

I was just about to photography these when they took off

After this I returned to the car, but on my walk I met a lot of friendly people all keeping their dogs under control. Not one went down the bank to disturb the wildlife.

That is it a better day that I had hoped for.

Have fun thank's for looking.
