The weather is conspiring to make things difficult at the moment. Even in the middle of the day there's a deep gloom around, punctuated by light (and occasionally heavy) rain. Still, I got a rare sighting (for me) of some lapwings. They were some distance away and the shot is terrible, but one purpose of the blog is to keep a record of sightings, so here it is.
I also grabbed a few fairly dismal shots of little grebes and a lone little egret. This shot managed to get both species in one frame.
For the rest, it's back to the garden pond, and another photo of a frog. If you look closely there are several damselfly nymphs in the frame as well.
And another damselfly nymph in this shot of a newt.
I was going to add a nymph on its own, but I've posted numerous similar shots recently, so instead I'll close with something from the trailcam.
Camera note: all daytime shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens. Pond life photographed with the EF 100mm f/2.8L macro IS USM lens. Fox with the Bushnell Trophy Cam.
