Reaching Jubilee Tower I had seen no wildlife at all and decided to drop down into the valley so see if I would have more success.
Movement by the far edge of the canal alerted me to the presence of a wren, not great light for these but one can only do ones best!!
There was certainly a chilly wind, I find it difficult to manipulate the camera controls with even thin gloves on and each time I took a glove off to take a picture it took a good while to warm my hand up again!
I took a small track down towards the river, some patieent following of a small unidentified bird revealed a lovely female stonechat...
Soon after this I saw a couple of waxwings in flight, no chance of photographs on this occasion:-(
A group of geese, probably greylags circled overhead before landing and feeding in an adjacent field.
I spotted a lapwing too...
A decent range of birds had been seen and a few miles walked, not a bad day:-)
