Took a bit of a look at the date on the last missive here and its been a while. A long while. Could regale you with stories about this and that getting in the way, but reality is I’ve just been putting it off, and lots of good activities have become lost in the mists of time, (well at least 6 weeks anyway).
One reason has been the weather. It has been drifting from unkind to downright ugly as any of my Flickr shots will show.
Sat by the tv last night watching the weather icons, (no not the presenter@!!!!), and thought, if that wind stays and the cloud moves across bet that the morrow will be a lovely clear morning till about midday. What do you reckon, a trip to Enynesbury? I asked. EE responded, not until I see what the weather is like in the morning. Fair enough.
In the meantime I packed all the gear and waited till the blue sky showed through the window. We were going!
One of the reasons to journey out there is the Diamond Firetail and the impossible “Speckled Warbler”.
As it turns out, we saw both, and photographed badly the Warbler, but it was enough to enthuse us for another run.
Rather than ramble on about walking in a grey box forest, and seeing Little Eagles with a rabbit, and all the other things that I never got the camera on, here are a few we did see.
