Having arrived at Marsworth reservoir it was obvious many people had also decided to venture out as witnessed by the numbers of cars parked nearby, and I had my camera with me despite not expecting to capture much of interest. I was not destined to be surprised!
There was certainly much to be heard, as birdsong filled the air, but only rarely did I catch sight of the singers, and when I did the branches made capturing an image of them impossible, especially since the light was poor. I took a walk towards Bulbourne alongside the canal. Finding nothing of significance I retraced my steps and on my return the light grew less but with subtle shades of pink, orange and blue, so I took a few landscape shots of the reed beds, and later listened to a pair of raucous Greylag Geese and watched, as I believe the male, remained ashore for longer before deciding it would finally join its partner on the water.
This was a far cry from the abundance of birds I had experienced while in India, especially in the grounds of the Deo Bagh Hotel in Gwalior!
