Observation:
With rain forecast I went to Slimbridge and it rained, no surprise.
But the Ducks didn't seem to mind here's a few pictures. First one of Grey Wagtail from the Rushy hide.



Headed down looking briefly in other hides bit of work clearing foliage so not much about got to Holden Tower, very busy with scopes and camera looking for Semi Palmated Sandpiper that's my effort :) no ideal if its there !  
If you can see let me know :)


From the Zeiss Hide the Wigeon took flight every 10 minutes


He didn't seem to mind .


Like water off a ducks head !


Final spot was a Snipe landed on the rushy. 



Here's To Drier Days :)
