Ogden late p.m. , too late p.m.

                           Drake Teal in the near dark and at distance.


It was 1600 hrs before I got free today so by the time I got to Ogden it was already coming dark ,not helped by the heavy rain and strong SW>5 gusting 6.
The whole area was void of birds other than a few Mallard and 2 BH gulls. Scanning across the water from the west bank I could just make out a single Teal on the east shoreline so other than come home with an empty camera it was a quick race against time, both with the darkness and the gates now being locked at 1700 hrs.
Once on the east bank I could see the Teal was a drake but with the water still well down and 3 parts dark the idea of a half decent photo was out of the question but took a few anyway.
A quick dash back to the car before lock up and home to dry the clothes out ready to get them wet again in the morning.
Target birds tomorrow :-  Wigeon and Whooper Swan.
