Early Monday morning trip to RSPB St. Aidan’s

Set off at 05:30 on Monday morning to RSPB St. Aidan’s in the hope of seeing the Black-necked Grebes again. Clear blue skies and not a breath of wind when I left home but by the time I got to St. Aidan’s the wind had picked up, although the sky was still clear. It’s a pleasant place to be early in the morning with all the birds singing. Here are a few of the shots I managed.
