A very cold 30 minutes

Hello All
         Yesterday afternoon was the first time I got out after dropping my camera. Well good news is that it seems ok. The lens is working (it fell on that) and that camera seems ok. I had thought of upgrading to the Canon D600 but there seems little point in doing so.

I arrived at Bloors about 1330 yesterday afternoon and walk towards the riverbank, this was just as the sun went in,bad luck. When I got to the open wharf an Arctic blast from across the river hit me, boy was that cold.

I managed to stick it for half an hour before heading home.

There were a lot of Gulls, Teals and a Red Shank, Crows but not much else.

This is the first time that I have caught on in flight


These bird were quite close to me and not worried as I move about


With the sad news of the death of Sir Patrick Moore here is a picture that I took in 2010 when I made a visit to his house with my club

Sir Patrick's dinning room



That is it for today I will show the rest later, thanks for looking
