We had a few nice cold clear days in the last couple of weeks, so I got out and had a go at it – I love getting out when it’s not raining around here.

Out at Reifel, the marsh wrens were building and calling like mad. Many of the Northern ducks were already flying away, but a few other regulars also made an appearance, resulting in an interesting walk.
