Since I returned from my Tanzania trip, some 6 weeks ago, a real local rarity has been reported but poor weather, family matters and other distractions have prevented me from going, until yesterday. 6 weeks is a long time to miss out on a local photo trip.

Still reported as present -  a Great Reed Warbler at Ouse Fen RSPB, only a few miles from my home so off I set. Easy to find and hear but not so easy to see. Even after all this time, there was still a few birders/photographers there. The weather was not ideal and the bird stayed some distance away in a belt of reeds so I was not hopeful of success but, after a couple of hours, it decided to appear within view - still distant so heavily cropped photos - but better than I have managed on the other two times that I have seen one.

Now back to the main job - editing the photos of Day 4 of my Tanzania trip. First run through completed, leaving me with just 333 possibles to narrow down to a mangeable number. Watch this space.
