Tried to get the sunrise this morning, but it was a non event compared to the one I missed yesterday. Oh well.
The video is very short too. It was so windy on the microphone, it wasn't worth saving most of it.
Whilst watching the pathetic sunrise, I did manage to see a couple of Fieldfare, and then later, a group of Redwing.
Quite a large flock of Long Tailed Tits were in the trees,
and a couple of Goldcrests chasing each other through the branches.
Too quick to capture with the camera though.
The Mallard gang caught up with me once I reached the north lake, and still followed me down the path after being fed.
No sign of the Red Breasted Merganser this morning; a shame when there's some sunshine available.
Plenty of Grey Herons about. Some quietly fishing, and others using up energy flying around.
A lot of Cormorants
and Great Crested Grebes on the lake today as well; and a bunch of marathon runners thundering round too.
