Willow Warbler (Lydney Old Rubbish Dump)

This morning wasn't any good for photographing, but, it was later in the afternoon. I caught sight of the Willow Warblers, there must have been about ten or twelve darting between branch to branch. It was lovely to see.

Swallow (On a cars aerial)

There I was, happily going about things, when I noticed a Swallow standing on a cars aerial. Out comes my kit, ie. photographers, took a snap. I thought that they had left, but, it was still a breath of summer left. They should have been in Africa by now. But, no.

Cormorant (Lydney Boating Lake)

Mallard Duck (Lydney Boating Lake)

It rained this morning which is a bit late. I got out at approximately 11.30hrs. This made it immediately 3 hours to play with, not enough. So, I didn't get much.
