Very little of real interest to report really, which is why it has taken me a while to get round to it. I am still very much inhibited by my post operative knee although, thankfully, I believe that recovery is heading in the right direction. I have made some plans for the future, now that covid lockdown is gradually being lifted. Let's all hope that there are no setbacks caused by people being stupid.

So, now down to business. 9th March, a drive to Grafham Water and a couple of hours sitting in the hide near Mander. I could just about walk that distance. Nice to be out but the only photo really worthy of interest was a bathing Coot.

Then on to Fen Drayton Lakes. Loads of people around so few birds to see from the car but there was a Grey Heron fishing near to the road.

Now to 29th March when I was able to manage a drive round with nothing of note. I ended up at Earith where the three Glossy Ibis were still in the roadside flooded field. With not being able to walk very far, it was a case of briefly pulling up by the side of the road and pointing the lens, hand-held out of the passenger side window. First time I tried it, just getting into position and some idiot in an Audi driving by decided to blow his hooter - off flew the birds.

I took a drive up to Chain Corner and back again and this time they were reasonably close and no sign of the Audi police.

Just time for a couple of quick shots.

1st April and I decided to see what was happening in my garden - just the usuals but sometimes anything is better than nothing.

At least these were better than some I have collected over the years so allowed some substitution and improvement of my back catalogue.

Next week, some of the reserves are opening - cant wait!!!
