Sunday morning write off, more fog.

                 
      Peering through the mist                            
                           Towards the cricket pitch
         Wheatear country
                                 Pitch void of birds
                                      Plenty empty seats
                Only sign of life
            Few corvids round the muck spreader.
                                         Snipe field

With thick fog same as yesterday I thought it not even worth getting the car out and wasting fuel so decided on a good dog walk around Old Guy Rd to check for Black Redstart.
The cricket pitch area has held, several Wheatear, Pied and Grey Wagtails, Redstart and Whinchat so why not Black Red.
With heavy drizzle and fog bird life was at a loss with just a few Corvids and gulls and nothing more
Another week to wait now unless the fog clears and we get back in time for the daylight for a quick late afternoon dash but thats two big ifs.
BS

Like the photos Bri. Did you get your camera sorted or has is it 'dead' ? Well done for giving it a try today.

£480 to repair so consider it dead.
Using the small camera but juggling around with a few ideas, soon be back in action hopefully.
