Duck weather

It's the usual January weather - mostly overcast. The sunny days do make up for it though. A quick trip out in the sunshine didn't produce a great deal but it was nice to see the Oystercatchers wandering around protecting their mates and making a lot of noise.
The local WT Eagles were sitting out on an island too far away for a decent shot but still an impressive sight.
The usual signs that spring is approaching Robins singing, Starlings in subsong...
...and the RB Mergs doing a lot of displaying.
The rainy days have been good for the ducks like this Common Teal standing in a slightly sheltered spot.
Just to make sure that you know that winter isn't over yet we get another covering of snow - it'll soon be spring!!
