Garganey (River Severn, Gloucestershire)

It has been a rainy day, as usual. I couldn't go out photographing, so I was bored, bored, bored. So I went to the local library, and if you look at the "about me" section, you will know that it can be ever so boring. But, I got together a sort of friendship with quite a lot of the librarian, especially Rosemary. She likes birds and quite often comes in with a new birds. Anyway, I don't go there for the reading, 'cause I can't, but, they have a good selection of CDs. Which I can record so that you will hear at the end of blog.

  15. Beautiful photos of the Garganey Bob. It is a lovely duck which I have been lucky enough to see and photograph but not as closely as you.

    So glad you have the library to escape to but such a shame you can't enjoy the books any more :-(

    The weather is dreadful here too!
