I have taken a while to put this report up, because in all honesty, I wasn’t happy with the photos I took.
It was one of those days, the weather was so so, and gradually getting worse over the course of the 6 mile walk and the birds decided not to play.
Fen Drayton Lakes is an RSPB site along the guided bus route in Cambridgeshire and has a couple of good routes along the River Ouse and around the site which I believe is an old quarry. It boasts a number of birds, a lot of wading birds and birds of prey, even some kingfishers…. however it was not our day to see them.
We were left with mainly ducks, swans, sea gulls and luckily a few lapwings and their unique call to enjoy.
Here are a selection of the half decent images I was able to get.
As I say, not a great set, and to top it off, I lost a leg from my tripod, so overall, not the best day. Ah well, better luck next time.
As always, thanks for looking.
