Sunday 15th October

Elder berries ripe for the picking. A bumper crop this year.

Smooth Sow-Thistle, seed head covered in dew.

Young female Reed Bunting, allowed me to get quite close.

Wild rabbit enjoying the morning light, thought he was invisible!

Dull grey day, bad for photography. Just took my binoculars today and was able to stand and watch a pair of Water Rail feeding at the reed edge, very secretive bird hardly ever venture into open water. Flock of flighty Gadwall are still with us, along with Teal and a couple of Shoveler Duck. Published a few pics from yesterday.
