This photo sums up my bad choice of location this morning (and there’s heavy editing just to remove the thick fog!). Last night I checked the weather forecast and it was showing as clear skies and sunny. So I packed my bag ready, got up at 5:45am and made the 40 minute trip to the hide at Aqualete Mere near Newport in Shropshire.

As soon as I got to Stafford, I hit a thick covering of Fog that just made bird photography impossible. Kingfishers, Warblers, Wrens and various Ducks and Geese were all in abundance, but no photos worthy of sharing. Still, it was good to sit there and watch the Kingfisher coming and going even if it did look black and white.

On the drive back, within 5 miles of leaving, glorious blue skies, certainly was the wrong location but the forecast (as it’s been for a while) was wrong.

Spread the photo love!...
