Waltham Brooks

After a completely washed out Saturday, we figured that we had to get out of the house and brave the elements. We found ourselves at Waltham Brooks in bright sunshine with birds flying everywhere. Lots of ducks, geese and starlings doing some amazing formation flying, plus kestrels and buzzards soaring and hovering. We kept hearing a Cetti's Warbler, but it expertly kept itself out of view.
The weather stayed dry with spectacular skyscapes, so we remained there until sunset to see if we could spot the resident Barn Owl. We didn't get to see it but the blood red sunset was well worth staying for.
